Wound Care

Dealing With Problem Wounds

At any given time almost six million Americans suffer from problem wounds. There are many types of wounds. Some are associated with complications from diabetes and other related vascular disorders. Other types include pressure sores and traumatic wounds. At our Wound Care Centers, the staff utilizes the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing and remain current in new scientific advances in wound care, including the use of the Center’s hyperbaric chamber, which can be used to treat such wounds as diabetic extremity wounds, radiation tissue damage and crush injuries.
