Who can benefit from wound care treatment?
If you have a wound that is slow to heal, you should contact Bronson Wound Center & Hyperbaric Medicine. It is always better to receive treatment for a small wound than wait until a more complex condition occurs.
You are also more at risk for these types of wounds if you have diabetes, a heart condition, peripheral artery disease (PAD), smoke or have experienced a slow-to-heal wound previously.
You do not need a physician referral to make an appointment with our team. During your appointment, we will teach you proper ways to care for your wound and how to prevent future recurrences.
What is hyperbaric medicine and when is it used as a treatment option?
Hyperbaric medicine is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of 100 percent oxygen in a total body chamber. The atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan. Depending on the type of wound you have, this may be part of your care plan.
What is one of the most important services you provide to your patients outside of wound care?
Education is one of the most important services we provide to our patients. We provide detailed instructions on how you can properly care for your wound, provide ongoing follow up and support services. We will help you cope with the demands of your wound/burn treatment program and lifestyle adjustments.
