At the Wound Healing Center, our goal is to not only to help our patients heal, but to prevent another nonhealing wound. Patients are active partners in their care, attending weekly appointments and learning how to care for their wound at home. Patients have access to health and wellness programs, nutritional assessment, diabetes education, patient counseling, and pain management.
The Center offers the latest wound care technology along with traditional treatment options including:
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
– a method of administering highly concentrated oxygen to a patient that helps speed up the healing process.
Bioengineered Skin Substitutes
– consists of an outer and/or inner layer of skin planted into a support structure that temporarily takes over the functions of the skin until it can heal
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)
– a sealed wound dressing connected to a vacuum pump applies pressure to the wound and promotes healing in acute or chronic wounds and enhance healing of first and second-degree burns.
– dead, damaged or infected tissue is removed in order to improve the healing potential of the remaining tissue.
Advanced Dressing and Wraps
– protects the wound from bacteria.
