The Center for Advanced Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Jeanes Hospital provides specialized treatment for chronic and non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved with conventional treatments.
Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors, including diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers, commonly known as "bed sores"). If not treated properly, these wounds may significantly reduce quality of life and, in severe cases, may lead to amputation.
When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a chronic or problem wound.
That's where the Jeanes Wound Care Center can help. With state-of-the-art treatments, including debridement, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dressing selection, special shoes and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The Center features a highly trained staff, comfortable and modern treatment rooms and two monoplace (single-person) hyperbaric chambers.
