Wound Care

When to seek treatment for my wound at the Wound Care Center.   Ask your doctor about visiting our center if:

  • You’ve had a sore that won’t heal for more than 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes).
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor, or a change in color.
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected.

Treatment tailored to your needs

Treatment you receive at the Wound Care Center is designed to complement the care your own physician provider, ensuring that your healthcare team is always working together to provide treatment that’s right for you.  Your team at the Wound Care Center includes physicians with advance wound care training, nurses trained in care of chronic wounds, and experienced technicians and staff.  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.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a simple but effective treatment in which a patient breathes pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream which helps increase the body’s own natural wound-healing abilities. It also fights certain types of infections, improves circulation and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. Therapy is administered daily and the number of therapies received depends on the individual’s treatment plan and diagnosis. The chamber has clear sides which allows you to see the surroundings and is in a comfortable treatment room.  Inside the chamber the pressure will gradually increase which may cause pressure in the ears similar to that experienced when flying on an airplane. A technician will tell you how to clear your ears to relieve any discomfort. During treatment sessions you may watch TV/video or simply relax while receiving this beneficial therapy.

    What to Expect During Your Appointments

    At your first appointment with the Wound Care Center, we will review your personal and family medical history, thoroughly evaluate the wound and work together to develop a personal care plan for you.

    At this appointment, we may also remove any dead tissue from the wound and schedule further testing if needed.

    Your care plan will require regular visits to the Center.  At each visit, we will examine the wound and track how much progress has been made, clean it if necessary, and review any tests results.  We will also address any concerns you have and what the next step of care is.  

    With your permission, we may regularly update your primary care doctor.
