The center offers the latest proven specialty treatment options, such as bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric medicine, growth factor therapy, negative pressure therapy, biologicals and biosynthetics, transcutaneous oxygen monitoring, total contact casting, and compression therapy.
Most treatments are covered by Medicaid, Medicare or insurance.

- Bone Infection (Osteomyelitis)

- Skin Tears
- Surgical Wounds
- Traumatic Injuries
- Venous Stasis Ulcers
About hyperbaric oxygen therapy: Saturation in 100% pure oxygen can promote the body’s natural immune system and healing responses, allowing wounds to heal more easily, from the inside out. Relax in a clear acrylic shell as you listen to music or watch TV and movies on players mounted above the chamber. You’ll be monitored by certified hyperbaric staff members and remain in constant contact with them through an intercom system.
