The Wound Center, a department of Fairview Park Hospital logo

A wound that has not healed can have a negative effect on your quality of life. At The Wound Center, our team of wound care specialists provides specialized treatment for acute and chronic wounds to help promote healing as quickly as possible.

To schedule an appointment with The Wound Center for wound care treatment, please call (478) 274-3730.

Because wounds can result from a variety of conditions, including diabetes, burns, bedsores, radiation and infections, we offer a comprehensive list of advanced wound treatments that use the latest technologies available. Our multidisciplinary approach to wound care means that not only will a wound care doctor treat you, but you will also have one-on-one access to wound specialists to assist you with specialized treatment, questions, scheduling and follow-up care.

Inpatient and outpatient wound care

If you are admitted to the hospital, treatment for your wound(s) can begin right away, with our dedicated inpatient wound services. For longer-term, chronic wounds, our outpatient wound care services are a convenient way to receive individualized care that’s designed to alleviate pain and discomfort while promoting healing.

What to expect from outpatient wound care

When you arrive at The Wound Center, you will undergo a thorough diagnostic exam to determine the type of wound you have and the underlying causes. After completing the testing process, you will then work with our medical professionals who will tailor a program specifically for you. Our treatment options are based on the most effective procedures and research available today.

Once treatment has begun, you will visit The Wound Center regularly for ongoing wound care. We will show you how to care for your wound at home between visits and protect yourself from further complications, like infection.

We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Because wounds need oxygen to heal properly, many of our wound patients respond well to hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a non-invasive, painless treatment in which the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen inside a pressurized, hyperbaric chamber for short periods.

HBOT can:

  • Increase oxygen flow to oxygen-starved areas of the body
  • Stimulate cell growth, regeneration and wound healing
  • Decrease risk of amputation in the case of diabetic leg or foot wounds
  • Stimulate small blood vessels
  • Promote new skin growth
  • Help fight infection and prevents future problems from occurring
