South Pointe’s Wound Healing Center offers chronic wound care management in an outpatient setting and features two hyperbaric chambers. The center uses a multi-disciplinary approach to wound healing and provides complete wound care services to those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven’t healed within 30 days.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is an adjunctive wound care therapy used to enhance the healing of certain problem wounds. Delivery of this therapy involves a patient to breathe 100% oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber. This stimulates many physiological responses in the cells and tissues, promoting wound healing.
