The Wound Care Center® comprehensive approach to wound management utilizes the latest clinical tools and traditional clinical practices.

Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Care Center if:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry from 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues. Up to 18% of wound care patients may require HBOT treatments, provided by physicians at the Wound Care Center®, who are specialty-trained in hyperbaric medicine, and our highly trained clinical hyperbaric technicians and staff.
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.
Generally, the physician currently treating you will refer you to our 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’ll 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.
