The Willamette Valley Medical Center Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine features the latest in advanced treatment for non-healing wounds related to diabetes, circulatory problems and other underlying conditions.
In addition, the staff provides valuable education to patients and caregivers to assist with problem wound management.
One of only a few wound care centers in Oregon, the facility utilizes state-of-the-art pressurized chambers for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). The advanced therapy quickly delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream, which assists in the healing process of wounds.
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.
