Wound Healing and Hyperbarics
The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbarics at Southwestern offers specialized wound care treatments of chronic wounds and non-responsive conditions. Wounds which do not significantly heal in three to four weeks may have underlying medical conditions that need expert care.
Current predictions forecast an increase in chronic wounds as rates of diabetes and vascular disease combined with an aging population increase the need. Likely candidates for treatment at the Center are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven’t healed.
Physicians, nurses and technicians at The Center for Wound Healing and
Hyperbarics at Southwestern receive specialized training and are dedicated to wound care. The providers and staff also receive ongoing training in the latest treatments and science of wound healing.
Leading edge treatments at the Center include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.
The center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This advanced therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood and allows oxygen to pass more easily through the circulatory system and into the wound to heal it from the inside out.
If you have a hard to heal wound, The Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbarics at Southwestern Medical Center help make a difference in your life. In the past seven years, our specially trained and dedicated staff have treated over 2000 patients and healed over 6000 wounds.
