Wound Care & Oxygen Therapy

Our Wound Healing Center offers hyperbaric treatments for wounds that do not heal. Hyperbaric therapy uses oxygen to promote healing of the skin, underlying muscle and bone. Better healing also reduces the risk of infection.

Hyperbaric treatments use 100 percent oxygen at about twice the normal atmosphere pressure. Patients relax inside our hyperbaric chamber during treatment which raises the oxygen level in their blood. Hyperbaric treatment is generally prescribed for wounds that have not healed within 30 days.

We treat wounds caused by diabetes, infection and skin grafts along with radiation-damaged bone and soft tissue. These services are especially suited for people whose wounds have not responded to other treatments.

We also have special wound wraps, tissue substitutes and skin treatments.
