Your Wound Treatment Plan

When you step into the Wound Healing Center, we prioritize your well-being. Your journey begins with a thorough health evaluation, leading to a personalized treatment plan crafted just for you. Working hand-in-hand with your primary care doctor, we ensure your needs are met throughout the plan, which typically spans up to 14 weeks. As part of our patient-centered approach, you may find hyperbaric oxygen therapy integrated into your treatment, using our state-of-the-art chambers for optimal healing.

Even as you complete your wound-healing stages, you're not alone. Our commitment extends beyond your time at the center. We're here to empower you with knowledge on at-home wound care and preventive practices for lasting health.

Coordinating with Our Wound Care Team is a straightforward process. While we specialize in healing wounds, your primary care doctor remains your point of contact for other medical conditions or illnesses. We actively communicate, ensuring your primary care doctor is well-informed about the treatments administered at the clinic.
