Often, factors such as smoking, diet, circulatory problems, diabetes, and arthritis prevent wounds from healing effectively, which causes them to become infected if not treated timely. A wound that won’t heal can quickly turn from irritating to life-threatening and, in extreme cases, can require amputation. That’s why it’s important to get treatment as soon as possible.
Wound Care Services at Hialeah Hospital
Our specialists utilize a wide variety of advanced medical techniques, such as Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, to promote healing, comfort, and quality of life.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy For Wounds
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a state-of-the-art medical treatment that supplies the patient with 100% oxygen. This approach increases the amount of oxygen in the blood and allows red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma that helps to heal the wound. This is a painless, proven, and non-surgical approach to promoting natural wound healing from within the body.
