Wound care involves medical intervention to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are non-healing or refuse to heal on their own. To promote healing, learning how to properly dress and care for wounds is vital.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
HBOT is an advanced type of treatment we use to heal wounds and a variety of other conditions, such as carbon monoxide poisoning and central retinal artery occlusion (sudden vision loss due to artery blockage in the retina).
This treatment is especially beneficial for treating wounds that are difficult to heal or affected by severe soft tissue infections.
Benefits of HBOT
During HBOT, patients rest in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber of 100 percent oxygen and breathe normally, increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood. The increase in oxygen:
- Activates white blood cells to fight against infection
- Helps blood carry more oxygen throughout the body
- Promotes wound healing in tissue
We understand some wounds and conditions can impact the appearance of the affected area. This is why we offer reconstructive surgery as part of our surgical services.
We offer reconstructive surgery for patients affected by a variety of conditions, including:
- Abdominal wall and ventral hernias
- Cancer (such as breast cancer and skin cancer)
- Carpal tunnel
- Chest wall and sternum conditions
- Peripheral nerve damage
- Traumatic injuries
