Chronic wounds can have a variety of causes. Diabetes, inactivity, chronic swelling and circulatory problems cause most hard-to-heal wounds. Up to 15 percent of the 20 million people living with diabetes are at risk of developing diabetic ulcers. Approximately 3 million Americans suffer from pressure ulcers. In others, ulcers are the result of disease in the veins and arteries. Traumatic injury, complications from radiation, surgery and skin disease can also cause stubborn wounds.

Located on the second floor of AnMed Health Cancer Center, Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine treats the following types of wounds:

Wound care patients do not need a doctor's referral to receive treatment. Our certified staff will work with several health care providers to create a care plan tailored to your needs.

Some of the treatments we offer include:

After any treatment, we'll make sure you and your caregivers know how to prevent these kinds of wounds in the future. We'll also make sure that you understand how to change any bandages, manage your pain, adjust your diet, reduce pressure on the wound and how to avoid falls.

This comprehensive approach to caring for wounds is one reason our patients do so well. AnMed Health Wound and Hyperbaric Medicine consistently outperforms many of our peers when comparing the number of days it takes wounds to heal, and in the percentage of wounds that do heal*.
