Advanced Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine in Battle Creek

For most people, wound healing is a natural process. But for others, it is a complex medical problem that requires specialized treatment and care.

The team at Bronson Wound Center & Hyperbaric Medicine in Battle Creek can help.

What services does the team provide?

Our team of providers includes highly qualified physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners. Each team member has been trained by nationally recognized wound care experts on the most advanced wound healing therapies. Some of the conditions we treat at the Wound Center & Hyperbaric Medicine include:

  • Any wound present for more than 30 days or fails to improve with multiple treatments
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Burns including pre and post-surgical care
  • Cellulitis
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Ischemic ulcers
  • Post-operative infections
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Skin tears of lacerations
  • Surgical wounds
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Venous ulcers

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.
