Comprehensive Wound Care Center

If you have a wound that has not improved in two weeks or is not healing after one month the answer may be a comprehensive wound care center which offers unique services to patients with chronic and complex slow healing wounds.

Comprehensive wound care services include an aggressive, integrated approach to wound management. The program focuses on improved patient outcomes through the use of proven and adjunctive therapies. These therapies are selected based on individual requirements.

One of these treatments is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) – this is a means of providing additional oxygen to the tissues of your body. Patients breathe 100 percent oxygen at increased pressure, for a short period of time, while in a hyperbaric chamber. This allows greater amounts of oxygen to be dissolved in the bloodstream and carried to body tissues in amounts large enough to improve healing and fight infection. Additional therapies may include compression, whirlpool, artificial skin grafting, application of growth factors or vacuum assisted closure. This use of advanced wound care therapies, not available in traditional outpatient settings, results in high patient satisfaction.
