Surgery and appointment information – Learn more

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, we have expanded and changed how we deliver care to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Depending on your medical needs, your appointments could take place in-person, by phone or by video. There may be times when an appointment or procedure may be rescheduled. In which case, we will contact you to let you know. Rest assured, all urgent needs will be addressed promptly.

Existing ChristianaCare patients can request an appointment using their patient portal account.

Visitor restrictions are still in place for your protection. Please refer to our visitor policy for more details.

Our operating rooms are now accommodating elective procedures.

As an added safety measure, all patients will be screened for COVID-19. If needed, your doctor will order a COVID-19 test to be performed at a ChristianaCare laboratory three to five days before your procedure.

Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center

Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center

The ChristianaCare Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center provides technically advanced, surgical and non-surgical outpatient care to heal wounds that resist conventional therapy. Our capabilities include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which can greatly improve healing and reduce healing time for some patients. Our skilled team evaluates and treats your wound, and establishes measures to prevent recurrence.

We provide care for chronic, non-healing wounds that have not shown improvement in four weeks or have failed to heal within eight weeks. These include:

  • Diabetic ulcers.
  • Ulcers on ischemic limbs (poor circulation).
  • Pressure ulcers due to immobility.
  • Venous stasis leg ulcers.

All diagnostic studies and evaluations needed to treat chronic non-healing wounds can be done within the ChristianaCare Health System. The center staff and physicians will coordinate with the patient’s primary care physician to obtain any necessary information and routinely communicate the patient’s progress towards wound healing. We will work collaboratively with your insurance company to assist in getting you the care you need. Patients are encouraged to check with their insurance provider regarding referrals or preauthorization.
