Wound Care

Innovative Treatment for wounds that won’t heal

Every year, chronic wounds and other conditions keep millions of Americans from enjoying their best quality of life. The staff at Bassett Healthcare Network - Center for Wound Healing use scientifically advanced, proven therapies, like the most advanced dressings and hyperbaric oxygen therapy to help heal patients who suffer from chronic and non-healing wounds.

We treat diabetic wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing, such as:

  • Foot or leg ulcers or sores
  • Surgical wounds that have opened (or “dehisced”)
  • Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing post-surgery
  • Open wounds caused by radiation therapy
  • Bone infection (called osteomyelitis)

We also care for Internal ‘injuries’ where no open wound exists, including:

  • Select acute traumatic and crush injuries
  • Radiation cystitis or proctitis
  • Reconstruction of jaw or bone (related to mandibular osteoradionecrosis)

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a treatment chamber. The increase in oxygen in the blood encourages the creation of blood vessels and increases the production of collagen, the body’s natural ‘scaffolding’ – both necessary for wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection. HBO can be the primary treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatments.wound-care-gurney.jpg
