Proven success in a caring, supportive environment
No one should live with a non-healing wound. With our caring staff and specialized treatment plans developed just for you, we have what you need to get back on your feet again. Most of our treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans. We are experts at caring for people whose wounds have resisted traditional treatment.
Specialists working for you
Our center is staffed with a unique team of doctors, nurses and therapists all dedicated to healing chronic wounds. The causes of wounds are complex and our group represents expertise in all of the major areas necessary to handle your varied circumstances and challenges. Whatever it takes for healing to occur, we are equipped and staffed to make healing happen.
When to seek treatment
Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center if you:
- Have a wound that hasn’t healed in 30 days.
- Have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor or change in color.
- Have a surgical wound that has become infected.
How to start healing
Generally, the physician currently treating you will refer you to our Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center for specialized care. You can also make an appointment directly. When you call for your first appointment, we will ask you a few questions about your wound and your health in general. Before treatment, our team of doctors and nurses will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history. Tests may be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation as well as to determine if there’s any infection present. Together with your physician, we will develop a treatment program based on your special needs. We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you’ll return to your doctor for follow-up care.
