Center for Wound Healing


The Center for Wound Healing

The Center for Wound Healing at Doctors Community Hospital offers a comprehensive program that includes state-of-the-art treatment for non-healing wounds, a multidisciplinary team of physicians specializing in wound care and the most up-to-date Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBO Therapy.


Characteristics of chronic wounds or ulcers include a loss of skin or underlying tissue which do not heal with conventional types of treatment.  Often, these wounds won’t heal due to a variety of factors including:

  • age Wound Center photo
  • diet
  • circulatory problems

  • arthritis
  • kidney disease
  • smoking

Wounds, due to their complex nature, require an individualized course of treatment to promote healing. Our staff is a specially trained team of physicians, nurses and therapists whose combined knowledge creates a multidisciplinary approach to wound management. We are dedicated to caring for people with wounds that have resisted traditional means of healing.


Chronic Wounds that are Treatable:

  • Skin tears or lacerations
  • Radiation burns
  • Post-operation wound and infections
  • Failed or compromised skin grafts
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Lower leg ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers (or bed sores)
  • Bone infection

Specific wound care products will be chosen for your wound depending on your needs. Proper dressing can go a long way to promote healing.


This minor surgical procedure enhances the growth of healthy tissues in the wound, creating an environment that leads to healing.
