Center for Advanced Wound Care

Emerson Hospital Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine

The strength to heal your wounds.

The Center for Advanced Wound Care delivers state-of-the-art outpatient clinical care. Our specialized team provides comprehensive therapy using the latest scientific advances. All while healing your wound in a truly compassionate way. After all, not all wounds are skin deep.

Inside the Center for Advanced Wound Care, you’ll find:

  • Expert treatment for diabetic wounds, wounds caused by poor circulation, pressure/bed sores, traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, burns and other non-healing wounds
  • Modern approaches to wound healing to shorten what can often be a long process
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy used in conjunction with wound care therapy

Your team. Your hospital.

To treat difficult, chronic wounds, it takes a strong, caring team and a deep commitment. It takes a group of physicians with advanced training in wound management, a nursing staff trained in chronic wound treatment and technicians ready to assist you along the way. Together, we complement your physician’s services to deliver the best care possible.

If you have a wound that has not started to heal in two weeks, or is not completely healed in six weeks, you may be a candidate for wound care treatment.

Your experience at the Center for Advanced Wound Care.

Upon arrival you will meet with a clinical staff member for consultation, including a physical examination and medical history evaluation. This diagnostic examination will help identify the type of wound you have and its underlying causes. After the diagnostic exam, our expert team will establish a treatment plan with you and provide progress reports to your primary care doctor.

Your treatment may include:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy — A two-hour treatment where you lie in a comfortable, clear chamber and breathe 100 percent oxygen, enabling your blood to carry 15–20 times the normal amount of oxygen and allowing your body to function more efficiently, start to heal your wound, and prevent further infection.

Debridement — A quick procedure where a physician or specially trained nurse removes unhealthy or dead tissue around the wound, typically on a weekly basis.
