What we do
Each year, an estimated 5 million Americans suffer from the adverse effects of chronic wounds. The aging process, diabetes and other conditions can lead to chronic, non-healing wounds. In some cases, these wounds can take weeks, months or even years to heal.
We specialize in treating wounds that have resisted healing after months or even years of treatment. We also treat patients with acute wounds and patients who have injuries that are complex and difficult to heal. People with slow-healing wounds no longer have to suffer. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments and help you avoid loss of limbs, reduce incidence of recurrence and get your life back.
We balance a practical approach to wound care with progressive options such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an adjunctive therapy in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while enclosed in a pressurized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. While breathing pure O2, the patient's blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 15 to 20 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissue. All cells have to be well oxygenated in order to heal. The ultimate goal is that the body's natural wound healing mechanisms are able to function more efficiently.
Some of the indicators for wound therapy are:
- Ischemic ulcers
- Diabetic ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Neuropathic ulcers
- Surgical wounds
- Venous insufficiency
- Traumatic wounds
- Other chronic, non-healing wounds
We provide a thorough diagnostic appraisal of your wound, followed by a carefully designed treatment plan. The diagnostic and treatment plan is fully documented and communicated to your primary physician who remains an active member of the wound management team.
Patients who may have a chronic or non-healing wound can ask their primary physician for more information or call one of our Practice Locations.
