We treat a variety of types of wounds, including:

We understand the factors that may be delaying or preventing the healing of your wounds. With this in mind, the wound care team performs a complete history and physical exam, which allows them to develop an individualized treatment plan unique to each patient’s needs. You will be thoroughly educated about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy before beginning treatment and your family will be involved in the treatment process.

Your referring physician will be kept informed of your progress with regular reports and photos of your wounds. Once your therapy is complete your care will be returned to your referring physician for long-term follow-up and monitoring.

Your treatment plan may include:

  • Laboratory studies
  • X-rays
  • Vascular studies
  • Surgical debridement to remove infected tissue and bone
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Application of specialty dressings or ointments
  • Use of crutches, wheelchairs or other off-loading techniques
  • Nutritional supplements or counseling
  • Physical Therapy
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)
