As a referring physician, podiatrist, or other health care professional, you are one of the most important member of your patient’s wound care management team, which includes physician specialists, certified or specialty-trained wound care nurses, and other wound care experts. Upon referral, your patient will meet with our staff for a consultation. Partnering with you, the team develops a treatment plan for your patient. Information about your patient’s progress will be provided to you on an ongoing basis. Treatments such as wound dressings, debridement, compression therapy, prescriptive growth factors, bio-engineered skin grafting, edema management, and non-invasive vascular assessment are among the techniques utilized at the Center that have proven results in accelerating the healing of difficult wounds.
One of only a few wound care centers in Oregon, the facility utilizes state-of-the-art pressurized chambers for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry from 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues.
It is effective in fighting certain types of infections, stimulating the growth of new blood vessels and improving circulation. In addition, HBOT is used to treat diabetic wounds of the lower extremity, delayed radiation injuries, osteomyelitis, and compromised skin grafts and flaps.
