Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center
Sometimes wounds don't heal as quickly as you would like them to. Several factors can delay wound healing including infection, poor blood supply, diabetes or patients not able to participate in their own care.
We are here to help. MountainView's Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center may be just what is needed to kick-start a difficult to heal wound.

- Vascular diagnostics
- Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
- Artificial skin grafts
- Ostomy care
Hyperbarics (HBO) can sometimes be the key to stimulate a difficult to heal wound when everything else has failed. HBO delivers 100 percent oxygen under pressure in a large and comfortable chamber. Patients can relax while listening to music or watching television.
HBO treatments are typically prescribed five days a week, Monday through Friday for approximately 1 hour each day, for 20 days, sometimes longer.
HBO stimulates wound healing by saturating the wound with 100 percent oxygen from the inside-out. This can decrease swelling, infection and pain associated with both.
Our wound care and hyperbaric team consists of registered nurses, hyperbaric technicians, podiatrists, and general, vascular and plastic surgeons.
