A wound that won’t heal may need more than just conventional wound care. It needs the Hyperbaric Wound Care Center at WJMC to provide a comprehensive treatment designed to complement the primary physician's care. A chronic or non-healing wound is defined as a wound that has not significantly improved during the course of conventional treatment.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows a person to breath 100% oxygen while they are in a pressurized chamber. The pressure forces oxygen into the blood plasma which is better able to deliver oxygen to wounds that are low in oxygen. Low oxygen levels in a wound heal slowly or don’t heal at all.

More than 3.5 million Americans suffer from wounds that may not heal after months, or even years, of traditional treatment. Chronic wounds are often painful and upsetting, and when associated with diabetes or poor circulation, they can be very difficult to heal. Whatever the cause, it’s important to diagnose and treat the problem correctly. That’s why the physicians and other specialists at the Hyperbaric Wound Care Center are here for you. A specially trained team of physicians, nurses, and technologists provide comprehensive, cost-effective wound care to patients with non-healing wounds.
