Every year, 3 to 5 million Americans suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions. At the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine, our expert team of physicians and advanced wound care nurses work together with patients and their primary care physician to heal chronic wounds.
Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
Our multi-disciplinary team of professionals assess each patient, develop a comprehensive treatment plan, monitor progress on a weekly basis and change treatment protocols as needed to achieve the best healing outcome in the shortest amount of time.
The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine has brought hyperbaric oxygen therapy into the mainstream of the wound and non-emergency treatment of wounds. Through increased oxygen levels, hyperbaric therapy stimulates the growth of new blood vessels at the wound site, increases the healing capabilities of the body and works to arrest certain types of infection. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has proven very effective for non-healing wounds, osteomyelitis that does not respond to standard treatment, problematic surgical wounds, diabetic leg and foot ulcers, and skin grafts and flaps. Hyperbaric Oxygen is also helpful with patients experiencing complications from radiation therapy.
During Hyperbaric Oxygen treatment, patients breathe 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber allowing for maximized healing. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is beneficial because it stimulates the growth of new blood vessels and increases oxygenation that can arrest certain types of infection and enhance wound healing. HBO is a supplemental therapy to be used in addition to current medical and surgical therapy. Transcutaneous Oxygen Monitoring: (TcPO2) The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides a tool for monitoring oxygen tensions. Transcutaneous oximetry has gained importance as a non-invasive tool for predicting potential candidates for hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
