Wound care

Wound care involves medical interventions to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are nonhealing or refuse to heal on their own. A vital aspect of treatment includes learning how to properly dress and care for a wound.

Wound healing treatments we offer

Our wound care specialists are equipped to care for a wide variety of wounds. Whether you need treatment for a soft tissue injury or surgery for a nonhealing, chronic wound, we're here to help.

Our wound treatment process

Every patient receives customized attention, from diagnosis to final treatment. Your wound care specialist will start by collecting your medical history and conducting a physical and other tests.

We will then create and implement a customized care plan. This care will include infection control, which is key to long-term, complete healing.

As you transition to outpatient treatment, your wound specialist will prepare you for independent disease management and home care.

Wound management and general surgery

Your treatment may require surgery, so our wound specialists may consult with our surgical team to provide the most complete care possible.

Our experts also partner with surgeons to prevent and treat non-healing surgical wounds. Our teams work together to make sure your wounds get higher quality care and better outcomes.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) - Coming soon

HBOT is a therapy that uses oxygen to heal wounds using a pressurized hyperbaric chamber. Inside, you will breathe 100 percent oxygen, which saturates the blood plasma 20 times the normal level. The high oxygen can penetrate damaged tissue up to four times deeper than by breathing air alone, helping it to revive and heal. The HBOT environment builds new blood vessels, decreases painful swelling and offers additional healing benefits to your tissue. It also kills harmful bacteria and neutralizes tissue-destroying oxygen radicals, allowing your body's repair processes to increase.

What to expect during HBOT treatment

Before treatment, you will be given cotton garments to wear inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber. For safety reasons, no other clothing may be worn in the chamber. Once you're inside and have gotten comfortably settled within, the technicians will begin gradually introducing pressure. The increased pressure might cause the sensation of fullness in your ears. Your technicians will talk you through methods to alleviate any discomfort. Most treatment sessions last approximately two hours. While undergoing treatment, you may watch TV, relax or even sleep.

Visiting us for wound care

Our new, advanced wound care and vascular center is located in Suite 103 on the first floor, accessible from the entrances of the Physicians Plaza or East Pavilion entrance. We advise you park near the Physicians Plaza entrance for the easiest access.
