Deaconess Wound Care and Hyperbarics
More than 3.5 million Americans suffer from wounds that do not heal after months, or even years, of traditional treatment. Chronic wounds are often painful and upsetting and, when associated with diabetes or poor circulation, they can be very difficult to heal.
It’s important to diagnose chronic wounds early so they can be treated promptly. And that’s exactly what the doctors and specialists and Deaconess Wound Care and Hyperbarics are here to do. A specially trained team of doctors, nurses and technologists provide comprehensive, cost-effective wound care to patients with nonhealing wounds.
Deaconess Wound Care and Hyperbarics is located at Bethany Campus, 7600 N.W. 23rd St., in Bethany.
Wound Care Treatment
At your first visit, the wound healing team will evaluate your wound and review your medical history and general health. Depending on the origin of your wound, you may need to have special tests to provide important information about the flow of blood, tissue oxygenation and whether there’s an infection complicating the healing process. The tests can be performed at Deaconess Hospital.
Once your test results are in, our wound healing team and your primary care doctor will develop a treatment program based on your special needs. Your program will involve regular visits to the center to provide treatment, follow your progress or make necessary changes in your treatment program. You will also be instructed on in-home wound care, dressing changes and ways to protect yourself from further skin breakdown.
