We specialize in Healing Chronic Wounds:

If you're suffering from a non-healing wound, you're not alone. Every year, chronic wounds, caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions, keeps millions of Americans just like you from doing things they love to do. The Center for Wound Care can help you get your life back. Our unique multidisciplinary team of dedicated doctors and nurses treat more of these wounds than anyone else. Many patients find wounds that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment can be treated. It's all we do. In fact, for most patients, the Center for Wound Care program leaves them completely healed in just a few months.

Who needs Wound Care?

There are a variety of circumstances in which a person may need wound care. They include, but are not limited to:
Ulcers (pressure, diabetic, neuropathic or ischemic)
Surgical wounds
Peristomal skin irritations
Preservation of compromised skin grafts and flaps
Crush injury/acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
Progressive necrotizing infections (necrotizing fasciitis)
Traumatic wounds

The hyperbaric chamber is a part of our wound care healing tools. A non-invasive clear acrylic chamber provides 100% oxygen to promote the optimum healing opportunity. While breathing pure oxygen, the patient's blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 20 to 30 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissue. The ultimate result is the body's natural wound healing mechanisms (which are oxygen dependent) are able to function more efficiently. Continued use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment increases the body's immune and healing response.
