Wound Management & Hyperbaric Medicine
For most people, minor cuts or scratches heal quickly. Others have compromised immune systems that turn minor wounds into major medical situations requiring complex care. The physicians and staff in our Wound Management & Hyperbaric Medicine Department are able to offer hope to patients with non-healing wounds that they may have been dealing with for years.
The department is equipped with two state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen chambers (pictured above) that provide additional healing capabilities. Not everyone qualifies for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, but those that receive the treatments are able to achieve high heal rates due to the higher concentrations of oxygen traveling in their blood to the non-healing wound beds.
The department is an outpatient, hospital-based program that specializes in the treatment of non-healing wounds and works in conjunction with the patient’s primary care doctor.
