Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

The Wound Care Center is home to the multidisciplinary team approach that includes plastic surgery, podiatry, infectious disease, physical therapy lymphedema specialists, nutrtion, and diabetic educators. The team collaborates to provide a streamlined, comprehensive team approach to successfully treating each patient.

There are a variety of circumstances in which a person needs wound care. They include, but are not limited to:

  • Diabetic wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing
  • Surgical wounds that have opened (or “dehisced”)
  • Wounds caused by poor circulation (arterial insufficiency)
  • Skin damage or open sores caused by radiation treatment possibly even many years ago that is now causing the skin and tissue to “break down”
  • Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing post-surgery
  • Even internal ‘injury’ where no open wound exists such as:
  • Bone infection (osteomyelitis)
  • Crush injuries from an accident
  • Damage to internal tissue (soft tissue radionecrosis) or bone (osteoradionecrosis) that causes pain or discomfort which resulted from radiation (radiation cystitis, proctitis, or necrosis)

In some cases, a wound may persist despite all interventions. In these cases, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may be indicated and is available onsite.
