Wound care

Wound care involves medical intervention to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital.

Advanced therapies for wounds and limb preservation

Some severe wounds and injuries need advanced special care, so we offer high-level oxygen therapy and innovative techniques to help you recover.

Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT)

During HBOT, you breathe 100 percent oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber while under pressure. This causes oxygen to saturate your blood plasma to 20 times its normal level, allowing oxygen to be delivered four times further into diseased tissue than by breathing air alone.

The high-oxygen environment builds new blood vessels, decreases painful swelling and offers additional healing mechanisms. It also kills harmful bacteria and neutralizes tissue-destroying oxygen radicals.
