Health Information

Conditions

Our Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for proper healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a non-healing or chronic wound.

Persistent non-healing wounds can cause deeper skin erosion, infection and complications that can be damaging to organs and limbs, which might require amputation. Non-healing wounds can be life threatening, particularly for those with diabetes or a heart condition.

Conditions that can cause a non-healing wound include:

  • Diabetes
  • Poor circulation
  • Infection
  • Traumatic or repetitive injury
  • Surgical incisions
  • Small burns (1st and 2nd degree)
  • Immobility
  • Edema
  • Inadequate Nutrition

Treatments

Medical Director Eric Marchant, MD, is a board-certified plastic surgeon and certified wound specialist with decades of experience. He provides laboratory evaluation, imaging testing, debridement, advanced dressings and more. Dr. Thomas Paliga, who is a plastic surgeon, offers complex surgical treatment solutions like skin grafts as well as skin and muscle flaps.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

In some cases, a more complex treatment plan that includes negative pressure, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings or hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be used to treat non-healing wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established treatment that provides patients with pure oxygen in a pressurized capsule, stimulating the release of growth factors and stem cells that promote healing and fights infection. Hyperbaric oxygen is usually well tolerated with few side effects.

Our experts are specialists in providing advanced wound care techniques through:

  • Evidence-based clinical protocols
  • An individualized plan of care tailored to your specific healing goals
