Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center
Helping Patients Get Back on Their Feet
Ever had a sore or wound that wouldn’t heal? If you’re living with a chronic wound, you know everyday activities are a constant battle. Some patients suffer for years without improvement, even facing serious infection and limb loss. The Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Providence can help you heal – and help you cope.
A wound becomes a “chronic” wound if it doesn’t respond to normal medical care within 30 days. There are different types – including diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers and sores, arterial ulcers, venous ulcers and traumatic ulcers. If you have diabetes, you’re particularly vulnerable to developing chronic wounds.
Advanced, Personalized Care
The Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Providence Regional Medical Center capitalizes on the expertise of a staff of physicians, nurses and technicians who work together to provide wound care tailored to your specific condition. The advanced treatment techniques we use to help you heal faster include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, bioengineered skin substitutes and vacuum assisted closures.
Bringing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to Everett
The Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center features two hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HbOT) chambers, which for certain non-healing wounds, enhance the body’s natural ability to heal and strengthen the immune system.
Essentially, HbOT heals the wound from the inside out. This helps:
- Reduce swelling
- Fight infection
- Build new blood vessels
- Improve circulation
HbOT is a thoroughly tested, completely safe and painless therapy. While treatments are underway, you can watch TV, listen to music, read or rest.
