Center for Hyperbaric and Wound Care
A specialty service of St. Mary's Regional Medical Center
The St. Mary’s Wound Care team offers a multi-disciplinary approach to healing wounds of all types from simple skin tears to wounds that have been present for months or even years. Our state-of-the-art approach to wound healing often employs therapies such as compression bandaging to reduce leg swelling and drainage and offloading techniques to reduce pressure on foot and other pressure related wounds.
We are one of only a few centers in our region to utilize total contact casting to assist in healing diabetic foot wounds. For the most difficult to heal wounds we provide the most advanced therapies such as the application of biologically engineered skin substitutes and the use of hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBO). HBO is a proven therapy to help heal diabetic foot wounds, skin injury and other ailments caused by radiation used in the treatment of various types of cancer.
