The treatment you receive at the Wound Healing Center is designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you. Your physician participates in developing your treatment plan and is kept informed of your progress every step of the way. Your team at the Wound Healing Center includes physicians with advanced wound care training, nurses trained in the care of chronic wounds, and experienced technicians and staff.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

To help in your healing, you may be referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The chamber has clear sides through which you can see your surroundings, and is in a comfortable treatment room equipped with TV and videos. The therapy quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream, which helps increase your body’s own natural wound-healing abilities.

Wound Treatment is a Team Effort

Because every patient’s wound is unique, you will have a thorough diagnostic exam to identify the type of wound you have and its underlying causes. A program specifically tailored to your needs will be started based on the most effective approach, which may include:

  • Vascular evaluation
  • Debridement
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Infectious disease management
  • Physical therapy
  • Nutritional management
  • Pain management
  • Diabetic education
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiology

Our staff will set up regular appointments for your visits to the Wound Care Center and give you all of the information you need to take care of your wound at home between visits. Keeping your appointments and following wound care instructions are essential to healing your wound, so let us know whenever you have questions about your treatment plan.

We Put Patients First

There are many medical conditions, even ones that you may not be aware of, that cause nonhealing wounds. We perform a series of diagnostic tests and, once a cause is clearly identified and understood, inform your physician. We will then work with him or her to develop your wound treatment plan. This collaborative approach helps to assure you that your doctors know about the treatments and medications you receive to help heal your wound.

We Work With Your Doctor

We work with you and your doctor, like a team, to develop a treatment plan which meets your needs. Treatment could begin during your first appointment.

Conditions We Treat

  • Diabetic Ulcers
  • Venous Ulcers
  • Post Surgical Wounds
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Ischemic Ulcers
  • Traumatic Wounds

Insurance Coverage

Many health plans cover wound care treatment. Your coverage depends on your specific plan. Be sure to bring your insurance cards with you when you visit our clinic.
