A wound that hasn’t healed can not only be uncomfortable or painful – it can also have a negative effect on your quality of life. At The Wound Center, our team of wound care specialists provides specialized treatment, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, for acute and chronic wounds to help promote healing as quickly as possible.
Advanced Treatments, Personalized Support
Because wounds can result from a variety of conditions, including diabetes, burns, bedsores, radiation and infections, The Wound Center offers a comprehensive list of advanced wound treatments that use the latest technologies available. Our multi-disciplinary approach to wound care means that not only will you be treated by a wound care doctor, you will also have one-on-one access to wound specialists to assist you with specialized treatment, questions, scheduling and follow-up care.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Because wounds need oxygen to heal properly, many of our wound patients respond well to hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO), a non-invasive, painless treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen inside a pressurized chamber for short periods of time. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy 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
Wound Care – In and Out of the Hospital
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'll visit The Wound Center regularly for ongoing wound care. We'll show you how to care for your wound at home between visits and protect yourself from further complications, like infection.
