Advanced wound care treatment

Hyperbaric medicine

Hyperbaric medicine, also known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), involves breathing oxygen inside of a pressurized chamber. In the hyperbaric chamber, the lungs can collect more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. This oxygen is then carried throughout the body to promote faster healing.

Conditions that are treated using HBOT include:

  • Burns
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Gas gangrene
  • Crush injuries/compartment syndrome
  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Radiation injuries
  • Skin grafts
  • Thermal burns

Limb preservation

Chronic wounds, often ones that are a symptom of diabetes, can lead to the need for amputation as a result of poor circulation, infection or neuropathy. Our integrated approach to limb preservation helps reduce the number of amputations needed because of diabetic complications.

Wound care and diabetes management

Diabetes is a chronic condition that can lead to serious complications if not treated properly. One of these complications is the development of wounds or diabetic foot ulcers that can sometimes result in the need for intensive treatment, including amputation. When your care is in our hands, we do everything we can to prevent this and provide treatments that preserve as much of the affected limb as possible.

We also provide diabetes education programs, which offer exceptional diabetes care to patients. Using individualized treatment plans tailored to specific needs and lifestyles, we work closely with each patient first to properly diagnose his or her condition and then to carefully manage the disease through nutrition, exercise, support and education.

  1. What guidelines define a chronic, non-healing wound?

If a wound has not improved significantly in four weeks, or if it has not healed completely in eight weeks, it is considered a chronic, non-healing wound.

  1. What are the causes of chronic wounds?

Diabetes, an aging population, immobilization and circulatory problems contribute to the majority of chronic, non-healing wounds. In developed countries, it has been estimated that 1 to 2% of the population will experience a chronic wound during their lifetime. Another 2.5 million patients have pressure ulcers, a common side effect of spinal cord injury, arthritis and other conditions that require a patient to be bedridden. Persons suffering from circulatory problems account for another half million patients. The rest have wounds that result from traumatic injury, non-healing surgical incisions and a variety of other diseases.

  1. How many people have chronic, non-healing wounds?

In the United States, chronic wounds affect around 6.5 million patients. 

  1. Why is a special center necessary for treating wounds?

Patients who have non-healing wounds require specialized and aggressive care. In traditional medical settings, many patients may not receive the interdisciplinary attention that these wounds require. For these people, minor lesions can unfortunately lead to chronic, non-healing wounds with serious infection, gangrene and possible amputation. Specialized care can make sure patients heal and return to their daily life activities.
