Special care for slow-healing wounds
St. Luke's highly trained wound care team specializes in care of slow- or non-healing wounds. Working with specialty physicians, the team creates individual care plans to heal wounds acquired from vascular surgery, general surgery, plastic surgery, pressure ulcers and diabetic ulcers. We educate patients and families on how to care for wounds at home to support a faster, more stable healing process.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)
HBO is a medical treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing process by providing patients 100% oxygen for breathing in a transparent body chamber. Pressure in the hyperbaric chamber is increased and controlled to help improve oxygen delivery to all tissues in the body. This also helps to reduce swelling, fight infection, build new blood vessels and, ultimately, produce healthy tissue. HBO is for patients with chronic, non-healing wounds who have tried other forms of wound care treatment.
We treat a range of conditions, including:
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Arterial ulcers
- Diabetic (neuropathic) ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Chronic wounds
- Acute wounds not responding to therapy
- Draining wounds
- Wound dressing changes
- Wound vacuum-assisted closure (VAC) care
- Diabetic wounds
- Surgical wounds
- Trauma wounds
- Radiation tissue damage
