Our wound center at FCMC offers a variety specialized of services to meet our patients wound care needs. We have a number of specialized physicians and staff who are skillfully trained in the art of healing chronic wounds as well as, many other conditions. We work closely with Team Home Health and can provide nutritional interventions to treat the whole individual. We also can offer care associated with chronic Lymphedema when a wound is present.
For more advanced wounds, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) may be an option for a patient's plan of care. HBOT is a medical treatment approved by the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine Society where the patient breathes 100% oxygen intermittently while enclosed in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. A patient can relax while being closely monitored by our HBOT technicians and is encouraged to watch a movie or listen to relaxing music during their treatment.
HBOT has been proven effective for many medical conditions including those listed below:
Chronic Refractory Osteomyelitis
Air or Gas Embolism
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Acute Traumatic Ishchemia
Enhancement of Healing in Selected Problem wounds
Some Non-healing wound
