The staff at The Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Sharon Hospital is highly trained and specialized in the care of patients with chronic or problem wounds. The staff uses the most up-to-date approaches to wound healing. Expert care helps patients cope with non-healing chronic wounds, increases quality of life, and improves healing rates.
Our physician team works with each patient’s primary care provider (pcp) to develop a treatment plan that is individualized to meet the patient’s specific needs. The pcp receives frequent updates on the progress of their patient and is involved in their care.
It is important to remember that your program will be tailored to your needs and is based on your wouond and your medical conditions.
Every wound is unique. A thorough exam is conducted to identify the underlying causes of each wound before appropriate treatment begins.
Patients receive regular appointments in The Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Sharon Hospital. Specially trained wound care nurses educate patients and families about their particular circumstance. Keeping appopintments and following wound care instructions is an important aspect of healing.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an advanced treatment indicated for specific wound problems. Patients breathe pure oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. A high concentration of oxygen is delivered to a patient’s bloodstream. This increases the body’s wound healing abilities. Therapy is administered daily; the number of treatments depends on and individual’s diagnosis and condition.
The hyperbaric chamber is safe and comfortable. Individual orientation familiarizes patients with the chamber and treatment details before beginning treatment. The clear sided chambers allow patients to enjoy the beautiful landscapes while being treated. Each chamber has a flat screen televisions to allow enjoyment of local television programs or movies.
