The Center for Complete Wound Care and Hyperbaric Therapy offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary, state of the art approach to managing patients with simple to complex wounds of various pathologies and/or disease states.

 

Hyperbaric Theraphy is integrated into a patient's ongoing health care with the support of the patient's attending physician. Patients are followed for a prescribed amount of weekly treatments that usually averages around six to eight weeks. Qualified wound care specialists provide weekly progress reports to the patients' referring physicians. The patients then return to the referring physician for their ongoing care.

 

After the initial assessment and evaluation, each patient has a treatment plan designed specifically for their particular needs. Therapies consistent with best practice and evidence based medicine are employed.
