Wound and Hyperbaric physicians, nurses and hyperbaric technicians are dedicated to developing a comprehensive course of therapy to help heal your chronic, non-healing wound.

Problem Wounds

Difficult-to-heal wounds are an increasing problem worldwide. There are many different types of wounds. Some are associated with diabetes complications and others are related to vascular disorders, including pressure sores and traumatic wounds. Healing these wounds can be frustrating and time-consuming. At Wound and Hyperbaric-Great River Medical Center, we use sophisticated approaches to wound healing and strive to remain current in new scientific advances in wound care.

Your Treatment Program

On referral to the clinic, you will undergo a thorough diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound you have. We also will work to understand and deal with any underlying problems complicating the wound. As this evaluation continues, we will begin a program that is tailored to your needs and based on effective treatment options. When appropriate, our physicians will ask other health care providers to help evaluate and treat your wound. The goal is a treatment regimen that offers the fastest route to wound healing. We are pleased to offer many of the latest technologies, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

After we have started treatment, you will visit the clinic regularly for wound care. You will be told how to care for your wound between visits. If you cannot care for your wound, we will help make arrangements to provide you with proper care. It is important to remember that you are part of our wound-healing team. Keeping appointments and following our instructions at home are essential to your care plan.
