The Wound Center at Sharon Regional Health System is dedicated to treating chronic, non-healing wounds resulting from a variety of causes, including diabetes and vascular disease. The Center offers evidence-based care which is proven to reduce complications and amputations related to chronic, non-healing wounds.
Nearly five million Americans suffer with chronic wounds that don't heal or fail to improve within four weeks. While most wounds heal quickly, there are specific types of wounds that cause severe problems if left untreated. Three main factors for non-healing wounds include diabetes, poor circulation and limited mobility.
The Wound Center's staff of specially trained physicians and nurses, working in conjunction with your primary care physician, helps with the diagnosis and treatment of the following types of wounds and medical conditions:
The Center also offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a non-invasive procedure often used to treat chronic non-healing wounds. During HBOT, the patient is placed in a chamber containing 100 percent oxygen that enhances the wound healing process. Hyperbaric treatments typically last about two hours. Most patients will feel no differently than they would at home in their beds. They can listen to music or watch TV, talk to family members or take a nap.
