"They're very knowledgeable. They're very caring.
And their expertise is just unbelievable."

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
To help in your healing, you may be referred for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber.
The chamber has clear sides through which you can see your surroundings, and is in a comfortable treatment room equipped with TV and videos. The therapy quickly and safely delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream, which helps increase your body's own natural wound-healing abilities.
Treatment Tailored To Your Needs
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. A program specifically tailored to your needs will be started based on the most effective approach, which may include:
- Vascular evaluation
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
- Laboratory evaluation
- Infectious disease management
- Physical therapy
- Nutritional management
- Pain management
- Diabetic education
- Nuclear medicine
Our staff will set up regular appointments for your visits to the Wound Care Center and give you all of the information you need to take care of your wound at home between visits. Keeping your appointments and following wound care instructions are essential to healing your wound, so let us know whenever you have questions about your treatment plan.
"The Wound Care Center saved my leg.
