At Memorial Wound Care and Outpatient Special Services we specialize in chronic wound care and limb perseveration. Every year, chronic wounds, caused by diabetes, poor circulation, or other conditions, can prevent complicated wounds from healing. We provide treatment that is based on each individual current acute and/or chronic health issue to optimize wound healing potential. We have a multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals who use the latest technology and specialize in advanced wound care modalities to increase healing times and improve quality of life.
At Memorial Wound Care Center, we put together a treatment program based on your specific needs. The program will include regular visits to the Memorial Wound Care Center to provide treatment, evaluate progress, and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, nutrition, dressing (bandage) changes, and protecting the wound from further injury. A variety of treatment options are available depending on type and severity of a wound. Treatment may include the following:
Hyperbaric Chambers are a part of our Memorial Wound Care Center healing tools. These non-invasive clear acrylic chambers provide 100% oxygen to promote the optimum healing opportunity. While breathing pure oxygen, the patient's blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 20 to 30 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissue. The ultimate result is the body's natural wound healing mechanisms (which are oxygen dependent) can function more efficiently. Continued use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment increases the body's immune and healing response. Our Certified Hyperbaric Technician’s will educate you with the knowledge to complete this treatment with the best results.
