Frequently Asked Questions
How do I schedule an appointment?
You may call Doylestown Health's Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine directly or be referred by your doctor. To make your appointment, call 267-885-1775.
What causes non-healing wounds?
Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly known as "bed sores"). An estimated eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds come from a variety of different medical conditions, and they don't heal for many different reasons.
What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a simple but effective treatment in which you breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. The therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to your bloodstream which helps increase your body’s own natural wound-healing abilities. It also helps fight certain types of infections, improves circulation and stimulates the growth of new blood vessels. Therapy is administered daily, and the number of therapies you receive depends on your individual treatment plan and diagnosis.
Will I have to change my primary care doctor or specialists?
No. In fact, Doylestown Health’s Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine prefers to work with your doctor or medical specialists during the treatments. We even keep your doctor informed with frequent progress reports. While you receive treatment for your wound, you'll continue to receive all of your routine care from your primary doctor.
