Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at York Hospital in Wells is a member of the Healogics network and offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic foot ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
With a dedicated, specially trained team of wound care providers and nurses, York Hospital Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine will review the patient’s health history and order diagnostic tests when necessary to assess circulation. The wound care team, along with the patient, will then establish a comprehensive treatment plan to take steps to heal the wound.
Wound care experts utilize advanced techniques, including negative pressure wound therapy, total contact casting, bio-engineered tissues, biosynthetic dressings, and growth factor therapies. The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen to help progress the healing of the wound. A relaxed and comfortable environment is provided in the chamber during therapy, where the patient may listen to music, watch TV, or nap, with a specially trained technician present at all times.
