* 1. Approximately 5-million Americans each year suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. These non-healing wounds occur when the level of oxygen in and around the wound drops below a certain level and your body’s normal healing process and ability to fight infection become greatly impaired. Chronic wounds such as these require specialized wound care and sometimes hyperbaric therapy treatment. Here are some questions to help you determine whether your wound needs specialized care.
Do you suffer from any of the following conditions:

* 2. How long has your wound been there?

* 3. Have you been to a wound center before?

If you answered yes to any of the above conditions and have a wound that has been unhealed for more than two months, you may be a candidate for treatment at our Institute for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. Even if you have been treated for non-healing wounds before, our institute has the latest technology including three private hyperbaric chambers to help you heal faster and return to normal.
