HSSS To Get New Wound Center With Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers
Bassett is partnering with The Center for Wound Healing, Inc., to open a Wound Center this summer at Hartwick Seminary Specialty Services (HSSS). The Wound Center, which will also include two hyperbaric oxygen chambers, will offer comprehensive evaluation and management of wound care to patients with complex non-healing wounds.
“Our community, like most communities across the country, has an increasing number of patients with diabetes. Diabetes places patients at higher risk for developing wounds. Diabetes also limits wound healing," says Bassett Medical Center Chief of Surgery Dr. Steven Heneghan. “Treatments offered at the Wound Center will give us the best way to care for patients with non-healing chronic and acute wounds.”
The Center will provide treatment for all types of chronic wounds, including diabetic ulcers, venous and pressure (decubitus) ulcers, as well as wounds caused by poor blood flow or other medical conditions. Two state of the art hyperbaric oxygen chambers will be featured at Bassett’s Wound Center. Hyperbaric oxygen treatment (HBOT) is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment that allows improved oxygen delivery to tissues, which can improve the body’s ability to heal challenging wounds.
The Wound Center will be staffed by members of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Vascular Surgery, including physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners with expertise in wound care, and will be located adjacent to existing dermatology and plastic surgery programs at HSSS.
