Center for Hyperbaric Medicine & Wound Healing
If you or a loved one has a wound or an ulcer that has not started to heal within a month or has not healed entirely in two months, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound.
There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic and there are many types of wounds. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other types result from pressure ulcers and trauma. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
Patients with the following diagnoses may benefit from HBO therapy:
• Diabetic leg and foot ulcers
• Chronic bone infection
• Acute arterial insufficiency
• Late effects of radiation
• Necrotizing infections
• Gas gangrene
• Compromised flaps and grafts
• Crush injuries
• Other non-healing wounds
The comprehensive, multidisciplinary treatment offered by this new center is proven to increase positive healing outcomes.
