What We Treat

  • Ulcers, wounds or sores that will not heal or keep returning; these include diabetic foot and lower extremity ulcers, venous insufficiency ulcers, arterial insufficiency ulcers and pressure ulcers (bedsores)
  • Skin grafts and/or flaps that have failed or are in the process of failing
  • Surgical wounds that have reopened or in any way have failed to heal, such as C-section wounds
  • Edema (swelling) and lymphedema
  • Delayed soft tissue radiation injury (i.e. radiation injuries to bowel and bladder)
  • Mandibular Osteoradionecrosis (delayed radiation injury to jaw)
  • Chronic Osteomyelitis (bone infection that has failed to respond to standard treatment)

Wounds from Diabetes Complications

Diabetic patients are at increased risk for acquiring foot ulcers that can become non-healing wounds. If you have slow-to-heal wounds due to diabetes complications, we have state-of-the-art solutions that can dramatically accelerate the healing process. In fact, many of our patients heal within half the time. For you, that could mean new relief from the slow, frustrating struggle to heal your wound.

How We Treat Wounds

Treatment may include:

  • Individualized dressing management
  • Debridement – removal of debris and/or dead tissue from wound
  • Bioengineered skin and tissue replacement
  • Compression wrapping (for ulcers associated with swollen legs)
  • Electrical stimulation (E-Stim) – a treatment in which a very low electrical voltage is applied to the wound in order to stimulate cellular healing elements
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy – a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a treatment (Hyperbaric) chamber at a pressure that is roughly twice atmospheric pressure. This enriched oxygen environment promotes the development of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and promotes the growth of new tissue and skin within certain wounds.
  • Transcutaneous oxygen testing to determine blood/oxygen supply to wound area
