There are many treatments and therapies used to heal problem wounds. One of the most advanced is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). During HBOT, patients breathe in pure oxygen, increasing the level of oxygen in their bloodstream to promote wound healing.
At the Wound Healing Center, our specialized team is trained in HBOT, and we make the experience as comfortable as possible. Our hyperbaric chambers have see-through compartments, offering patients complete visibility, freedom of movement and the ability to easily communicate with our caregivers. Patients may rest comfortably or watch television while receiving treatment.
Patient care at the Wound Healing and Treatment Center may include the following treatments and therapies:
- Advanced wound dressings
- Antibiotic therapy
- Nutrition counseling
- Skin substitutes
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Lymphedema/compression management
- Diabetic education
- Pre and post ostomy care
Patients who visit the Wound Treatment Center will be evaluated and cared for by our wound care physician. He will then collaborate with other specialists as needed, such as podiatrists, general surgeons and vascular surgeons, to ensure a comprehensive wound healing.
Our multidisciplinary team also works closely with primary care physicians, developing personalized treatment plans and keeping the patients’ doctors informed of their progress.
In addition to wound specialists and physicians, the center also provides education on diabetes and nutrition to help patients learn what choices to make to assist the healing process.
