St. Vincent's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center

 

St. Vincent's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center specializes in the treatment of chronic wounds, a growing epidemic because of the aging population and the increased incidences of obesity and diabetes. 

According to the American Medical Association, the risk of death from unhealed neuropathic ulcers is greater than both breast cancer and prostate cancer combined.  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a successful means of treating diabetic ulcers, chronic or non-healing wounds, bone infection, crush injuries and tissue breakdown from radiation therapy.

Chronic Wounds

Chronic, non-healing wounds decrease the quality of your life and can create greater health issues for you and your family. A non-healing or chronic wound is defined as a wound that shows little or no improvement after four weeks or does not heal in eight weeks. A nonhealing wound poses the risk of infection, which can lead to a more serious condition, possibly resulting in the loss of a limb.

Advanced Wound Healing

Upon admission to our Center, an interdisciplinary treatment team headed by a Center physician will conduct a comprehensive assessment of your condition. The results are used to develop a treatment plan that is customized to meet your needs. The plan may include one or a combination of the following treatment
modalities:

  • Vascular Studies
  • Surgical Interventions/Debridement
  • Dressings and Compression Wraps
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Bio-engineered Tissue Substitutes
  • Vacuum Assisted Closure
  • Off-Loading, Nutritional and Diabetic Support
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a highly effective way to help the body’s natural ability to heal wounds itself and prevent limb loss. Using
oxygen under increased pressure to speed healing and repair tissue damage due to ischemia, hyperbaric therapy has a proven track record in the healing of chronic wounds as well as a host of other medical conditions
(including radiation damage), and has been shown to reduce the amputation rate of patients with diabetic wounds.
