Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center
The Christiana Care 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 Christiana Care 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.
