We utilize best clinical practices that begin with a thorough patient evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine wound etiology. An individualized care plan is then developed using evidence-based therapies that are highly effective in facilitating the healing process, including:
As the referring physician, your patient remains in your care. You will receive ongoing progress reports with updated photos, remaining an active member of the wound care management team. Upon healing, your patient is discharged back to you.
Any patient who has a wound that has not responded to conventional therapy should be referred to the wound center for further evaluation.FIND A LOCATION

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is the utilization of oxygen under pressure to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal. Patients breathe 100% oxygen inside a treatment that is pressurized at 2-3 times greater than atmospheric pressure. The treatment causes an increase in plasma and tissue oxygen, which stimulates angiogenesis and helps to fight infection. HBO can be the primary therapy or it can be used in conjunction with other treatments.
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy may be used as an important adjunctive therapy for a number of indications, including, the following:
Coverage for indications varies based upon insurance carrier. Please consult your LCD or contact your local wound center to learn more.
