Chronic, non-healing wounds, those that haven’t shown signs of improvement in several weeks or are not responding to typical treatments, need extra help to heal. Difficult wounds of this type are often caused by injury, disease or poor blood supply. Western Arizona Regional Medical Center provides specialized treatment for these types of wounds.
If you have a wound that has not healed, consider seeking help at Western Arizona's Wound Healing Center.
A specially-trained team of physicians, nurses and technologists, provide comprehensive cost-effective wound care to patients with non-healing wounds resulting from:
Our staff is a unique team of multi-specialty physicians, nurses and therapists whose combined knowledge creates a multidisciplinary approach to wound management. We are dedicated to caring for people with wounds that have resisted traditional means of healing.
Making the choice is the first important step in your treatment. Since the center focuses on wound care we will consult your regular doctor for additional medical care and will keep him abreast of the progress you are making. Together, with you and your doctor, we offer promise for wounds that are difficult to heal.
Our wound treatment doctors, nurses and therapists will evaluate your wound and review your medical history and general health. Depending on the origin of your wound you may have special tests to provide us with important information about the flow of blood, tissue oxygenation and whether or not infection is complicating the healing process.
Once your test results are in, our team in concert with your primary care physician, will develop a treatment program based on your special needs. Your program will involve regular visits to the center to provide treatment, follow your progress, or make necessary changes in your treatment program. You will also be instructed in home wound care, dressing changes, and ways to protect yourself from further skin breakdown.
Under certain diagnoses, HBO (Hyperbaric O2) may be indicated and ordered by one of our physicians to help facilitate the wound healing process. HBO helps reduce inflammation, slows the spread of some infectious organisms and promotes new blood vessel growth.
HBOT (Hyperbaric O2 Therapy) is the process of breathing 100% oxygen intermittently, inside one of our treatment chambers at a pressure that is higher than sea level. A typical treatment usually takes less than two hours to complete and is ordered daily, Monday through Friday.
Much of the success of your wound treatment depends on your level of commitment and participation. As an active member of your wound management team, you will need to follow directions carefully, watch your progress closely, and keep your appointments. Remember, your wound treatment staff is available to answer any questions concerning your treatment program.
