Wound Healing

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Amery Hospital & Clinic, in collaboration with other healthcare organizations and government agencies, has decided to delay all elective surgeries, procedures and non-essential radiology services during the Coronavirus outbreak for the safety and care of our patients and team members. If you have an existing appointment, we’ll call you and help you reschedule.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Wound Healing Center is dedicated to treating patients with chronic, non-healing wounds. Likely candidates for treatment are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven't healed within 30 days.  

One of the highly specialized treatments offered at the center is hyperbaric oxygen therapy which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This increases the amount of oxygen in the patient's blood and, in the case of wounds, allows red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma into the wound to heal it from the inside out. Diabetic foot wounds are an excellent example of wounds that may benefit most from this type of treatment. The center's hyperbaric oxygen chambers can also be used to treat patients suffering from such uncommon ailments as cyanide poisoning, gangrene, carbon monoxide poisoning, brown recluse spider bites and the “bends,” or decompression sickness.

In addition to tissue oxygenation, the Wound Healing Center also employs the use of vascular studies, tissue culturing and pathology, revascularization, skin grafting, and clinical or surgical debridement.

Our Wound Healing Specialists identify the specific causes of these conditions, initiate a treatment plan that is designed specifically for the patient, and implement that treatment plan with the quality you expect. Located on 230 Deronda Street in Amery, the Wound Healing Center is easy for patients to find and visit. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
