Diabetes, immobilization or circulatory problems are just a few ways that people get chronic wounds. Wounds that don’t heal properly can quickly escalate from being a nuisance to a serious health threat.
The caring physicians at Brookwood Baptist guide you through every step of the healing process. Our doctors use the latest technologies in debridement, infection control, surgical intervention, wound closure devices and hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatment, an innovation that uses pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber to expedite the healing process. We also offer bio-engineered skin replacement tissues.
Indications for wound care include the following:
Wounds due to compromised blood supply – i.e. venous or arterial ulcers/sores that can affect the lower legs and feet
