Diabetic foot wound care
As a chronic condition, diabetes can lead to serious complications if not treated properly. One of these complications is the development of 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.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) treatment
Also known as hyperbaric medicine, HBOT involves breathing oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. In the hyperbaric chamber, the lungs can collect more oxygen than would be possible otherwise by 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, gas gangrene, skin grafts and thermal burns.
Chronic wounds 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 likelihood of amputation due to diabetic complications. We also provide diabetes education programs, which offer exceptional diabetes care to patients.

Frequently asked questions
Here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
Do I need a referral from my physician for treatment at your facilities?
No, a referral is not necessary to be seen or treated at our center. You may call us to schedule an appointment near you.
What are the causes of chronic wounds?
In developed countries, it has been estimated that one to two percent of the population will experience a chronic wound during their lifetime according to the National Library of Medicine (NLM).
Some causes include:
- Circulatory problems
- Conditions that require you to be bedridden
- Nonhealing surgical incisions
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic injury
How many people have chronic, nonhealing wounds?
In the United States, chronic wounds affect around 6.5 million patients according to the NLM.
Why is a special center necessary for treating wounds?
In traditional medical settings, you may not receive the interdisciplinary attention that these wounds require. If you have specific health conditions, even minor lesions can, unfortunately, lead to chronic, nonhealing wounds, which can lead to a serious infection, gangrene and possible amputation. The highly focused care we provide can make sure you heal and return to your daily life activities.
