Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center

If you have a wound that has not responded to treatment in four weeks, is difficult to treat, infected or rapidly worsening, you may have a chronic, non-healing wound and might benefit from a comprehensive wound care program.

Jane Fore, M.D., is the attending physician in the Tri-State Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center and works with specialized nurses and other highly trained staff to treat patients with chronic wounds.  Dr. Patrick Gonzales assists Dr. Fore in the Wound Healing Center.

What We Do

The Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center operates on the following basic principles to maximize healing potential:

  • Addressing the underlying illnesses
  • Improving blood circulation
  • Decreasing swelling
  • Improving nutrition and blood sugar control
  • Maintaining moist, clean wound environment
  • Removing impaired tissue
  • Off-loading pressure to the wound area

 
Based on these principles, we will develop a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to healing your wound. The center uses a variety of medical technologies to diagnose and treat chronic, non-healing wounds. Some of these include:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Radiometer Non-Invasive Vascular Diagnostics
  • Laser Doppler Studies
  • Bioengineered Skin
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
  • Circulator Boot Therapy

 

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, or HBOT, involves the delivery of oxygen at greater than normal pressure. Oxygen is a vital component to the healing process and patients with poor circulation, such as diabetics, may benefit from this therapy.

Patients using HBOT sit or lie in a hyperbaric chamber and breathe 100 percent oxygen at two to three times atmospheric pressure. These treatments are provided daily or several times per week for four to six weeks.

Patient Information

You must have a physician referral to be seen at the Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Center. Once referred, please fill out the “New Patient” packet and bring it with you to your first appointment, as well as a list of your allergies and all your current medications with doses and times.

Plan to spend at least two to three hours at the center for your first appointment.
