The Center for Complete Wound Care and Hyperbaric Therapy
Behind the double doors of Little Company's Center for Complete Wound Care and Hyperbaric Therapy, a multidisciplinary treatment team is working hard to manage acute and chronic wounds and possibly eliminate the threat of amputation. The program includes extensive wound assessments using the most recent advanced topical wound care agents, vacuum assisted closure (V.A.C.) therapy; lymphedema management; ostomy care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Opening its doors in 1999, Little Company became one of the first providers of hyperbaric therapy on Chicago's South and Southwest sides. Hyperbaric therapy delivers 100 percent oxygen at high pressure to patients in specialized chambers to treat a variety of illnesses as well as problem wounds. This therapy promotes blood vessel formation, fights infection and reduces tissue edema.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions including, but not limited to: chronic refractory osteomyelitis, radiated soft tissue injury, diabetic foot ulcers, failed grafts, and crush injuries.
The Center for Complete Wound Care and Hyperbaric Therapy is conveniently located at the North Pavilion entrance to the hospital with valet and nearby outpatient parking available. The highly trained staff includes qualified wound care physicians, as well as nurses and technicians who are trained and/or certified in wound ostomy and continence nursing and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
