You Care For Your Patients - We Care For Their Wound
As a referring physician, podiatrist, or other health care professional you are the most important member of your patient’s wound care management team, which includes physician specialists, certified or specialty-trained wound care nurses, and other wound care experts. Upon referral, you patient meet with our staff for a consultation. Partnering with you, the team develops a treatment plan for your patient. Information about your patient’s progress will be provided to you on an ongoing basis. Treatments such as wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, prescriptive growth factors, bio-engineered skin grafting, edema management, and non-invasive vascular assessment are among the techniques utilized at the Center that have proven results in accelerating the healing of difficult wounds.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) 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 percent of wound care patients may require HBOT treatments provided by the Center’s physicians, who are specialty-trained in hyperbaric medicine, and our highly-trained clinical hyperbaric technicians and staff.
Approved indications for HBOT which are currently reimbursed by Medicare and other insurance providers include:
- Diabetic ulcer of the lower extremities
- Soft tissue radionecrosis and osteoradionecrosis
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
- Compromised skin grafts and flaps
- Crush injury/acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
- Progressive necrotizing infection (necrotizing fasciitis)
- Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
