Our Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center offers new hope for healing chronic wounds that have been slow to response to traditional treatment. Using advanced therapeutic techniques and technology, our goal is to return patients safely and comfortably to the health and lifestyle they deserve. The Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center is a partnership between Healogics Inc. and Sampson Regional Medical Center. With dedicated surgeons and a highly trained staff, our accredited team of experts specialize in hard-to-heal wounds. Healogics provides wound care and hyperbaric training to the physicians and clinical staff, a Clinical Coordinator maintains oversight of our healing metrics, and a Program Director ensures quality and operational standards are met. With this team of wound healing experts, we have the ability to heal wounds and change lives.
The Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center specializes in healing chronic wounds, or those wounds that fail to heal two weeks after the onset of the wound, ulcer, or sore. Ultimately, if you have an open area you are uncomfortable with, you should call the Wound Care & Hyperbaric Center as soon as possible. Early treatment can help prevent infection, amputation and other more invasive treatments. Physician referrals are always accepted, but patients are also welcome to call for an appointment without a referral.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used as an adjunctive treatment option for wounds that fail to heal from conventional wound care protocols. As much as 20% of our patient population could be eligible for hyperbaric therapy. Just as we need oxygen to live, wounds need oxygen to heal. During treatment, patients are monitored in a pressurized chamber where 100% oxygen is released in a contained area, allowing the lungs to gather more oxygen than is possible at normal air pressure. The bloodstream carries the oxygen through the body and subsequently stimulates the release of growth factors that assist in wound healing. This therapy essentially heals you wound from the inside out.
At the Wound Care Center, we utilize hyperbaric oxygen therapy for treatment of the following conditions: chronic osteomyelitis, crush injuries, diabetic wounds of the lower extremity, osteoradionecrosis, soft tissue radiation injuries, and compromised/failed grafts or flaps.
The Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center accepts most insurance plans, including Medicare. Our staff will obtain the necessary authorizations to determine coverage for our patient’s care.
