During your first appointment, we will perform a thorough evaluation of the wound including measuring the wound size and depth. This information will allow us to track the wound’s healing progress once treatment begins. We follow treatment protocols specifically established for each type of wound and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care. Our treatment methods include:
- Wound consultation/evaluation, diagnostic and treatment
- Non-invasive vascular studies
- Specialty wound dressings
- Cellular and tissue based products
- Compression Therapy
- Treatment of wound infections
- Pressure off-loading devices and footwear
- Negative pressure wound therapy
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
- Patient and family education
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment sometimes used to treat chronic wounds and takes place in a transparent acrylic chamber. HBOT is used as an outpatient treatment for more than a dozen medical conditions including diabetic foot ulcers, radiation injuries to tissue and bone, gas gangrene, osteomyelitis, compromised skin grafts and skin flaps and crush injuries.
In a hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is increased two to three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather much more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure.
When your blood carries this extra oxygen throughout your body, this helps fight bacteria and stimulate the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
