TriHealth’s Advanced Wound Healing Centers offer convenient, leading-edge outpatient services and treatment options – including the breakthrough hyperbaric oxygen therapy – in a private, comfortable environment. Our experienced clinical team performs a multidisciplinary assessment on each patient, complemented with sophisticated case management to help monitor and stage healing.
Wounds We Treat
Our goal is to accelerate your recovery process so you can return to a life free from the pain and discomfort of chronic and non-healing wounds, including:
- Diabetic wounds/ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Arterial ulcers
- Vasculitic ulcers
- Complex soft tissue wounds
- Traumatic wounds
- Infected wounds
- Burns and radiation wounds
Our clinical approach is systematic and focused on rapid healing, while also addressing the underlying causes of patients’ wounds. Patients can expect customized evaluation and treatment followed by education, including a healthy diet and exercise routine, to minimize the chance of recurrence. Our comprehensive services and customized approach helps patients heal faster and avoid more serious illnesses such as progressive tissue loss or amputation.
Experienced, Specialized Clinical Team
Our Advanced Wound Healing Centers offer expert teams (at each location) who work with multiple medical disciplines to maximize healing outcomes. Board-certified physicians representing a variety of specialties practice at our centers, delivering the highest level of comprehensive care. Our centers also consult with supporting allied health professionals – such as physical therapists, nutritionists and social workers – connecting patients to additional resources as needed.
We provide a warm and caring environment, combined with physician-directed, aggressive wound management. In addition, we use sophisticated case management while collaborating with each patient’s primary care physician.
Our clinical team includes:
- Board-certified physicians who have received advanced training in wound management. Specialties represented include such areas as internal medicine, general surgery, vascular surgery, podiatry and plastic surgery
- Nurses trained in caring for chronic wounds
- Hyperbaric technologists (Bethesda North Hospital only)
Diabetic Wounds and Other Wound Conditions
Diabetes affects more than 23 million people in the United States. Because diabetes can lead to decreased blood circulation in the lower extremities, foot wounds and ulcers can become serious very quickly. Our professionals are tuned in to the unique wound care needs of diabetic patients and offer rapid treatment to preserve tissue and prevent infection.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Other Advanced Treatment Options
Our specialists use the most current diagnostic tests, technologies and cutting-edge treatments to help you heal faster and return to your normal life. We customize treatment plans and continuously assess your progress to ensure we are providing the right therapy at the right time for maximum effectiveness.
Our most recent breakthrough treatment option, offered at Bethesda North only, is hyperbaric oxygen therapy, where the patient breathes 100 percent oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber at greater than atmospheric pressure. The increased concentration of oxygen stimulates the formation of a collagen matrix so new blood vessels develop and healing accelerates. This therapy is typically five days a week, with each session lasting two hours. Patients may watch television, adjust their bed, and communicate with their technician during treatment to maximize comfort.
Other wound treatment options include:
- Debridement (removal of dead/contaminated tissue and foreign matter)
- Infection control
- Growth factor therapy
- Bioengineered skin substitutes
- Compression therapy
- Negative pressure wound therapy
- Offloading techniques such as total contact casting (equal distribution of foot pressure)
Since wound care services may differ among insurance plans, patients should check with their insurance providers to determine coverage.
