Primary care physicians can treat most wounds. But difficult to heal wounds, or chronic wounds-those that don't improve after 30 or more days of care-require special treatment.
This advanced wound care is available at Kettering Health Network's Wound Healing Centers. We use a team approach, working closely with your primary care doctor and specialist to achieve the best result.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, a therapy in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while in a pressurized chamber, can be administered as part of a wound treatment program. Kettering Health Network offers a variety of hyperbaric chambers at multiple locations.
