The Center for Wound Care
More than 5 million people in the United States suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, vascular disorders, traumatic injuries, pressure sores, surgeries and other conditions that slow down the body's healing process. At The Center for Wound Care – a department of Kingwood Medical Center – we understand that healing wounds is a complex process. It involves thorough assessments, accurate diagnoses and appropriate treatment to achieve optimum results. Our highly skilled team of wound care physicians, nurses and other medical professionals works with each patient to develop an individualized plan of care.

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
HBOT is one of several advanced wound care methods of treatment that involves a patient breathing 100 percent oxygen that is two to three times greater than atmospheric pressure. This causes the oxygen to spread into the blood plasma. The pressurized environment helps reduce swelling and discomfort while providing the body with at least ten times its normal supply of oxygen. This helps repair tissue damaged by the original injury. HBOT is typically used in conjunction with another procedure or as a primary treatment when others are not successful.
HBOT may be used for the following Medicare (CMS) approved indications:
- Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
- Chronic refractory Osteomyelitis
- Preparation and preservation of compromised grafts/flaps
- Soft tissue radionecrosis
- Necrotizing Fasciitis
- Crush injuries
- Acute Traumatic Peripheral Ischemia (ATPI)
- Decompression illness
- Acute Peripheral Arterial Insufficiency
