wound care treatment in prince george's county marylandWe evaluate your wound and health history, then work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs. This plan will include regular visits to the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine for treatment – all focused on accurately evaluating your progress and making timely changes that can quicken your recovery. You will receive detailed instructions about home care, nutrition, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.

Treatment options include:

Wound dressing

Wound dressing provides an optimal environment to support healing, and it cannot be a “one bandage fits all” approach. To choose the most appropriate dressing for you, we conduct a comprehensive assessment to understand your wound’s characteristics and stage of healing so we can select dressing products that are the most effective for your unique needs.

Wound debridement

Debridement removes dead tissue and foreign material from the wound bed, which supports healing and reduces the risk of infection. There are many ways to debride including selective use of enzymes and moisture as well as manual, laser or surgical removal of dead tissue. These options create an environment that promotes healing and the growth of new, healthy tissue.

Case management

Specially trained case managers understand ongoing care needs for your wound and facilitate home care (dressing, home supplies, appointment reminders, etc.) to support your healing process. Success in healing depends on your commitment to keeping your appointments and continuing care at home—and we are here to help you every step of the way.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)

Advanced technology that stimulates wound healing, HBOT increases oxygen levels to help the body kill germs and foster healing. Learn more about HBOT.
