Advanced Treatment for Chronic Wounds
Chronic wounds can lead to bone infection or even limb amputation if left untreated. Wound care specialists at Southwest Healthcare can help treat your chronic wounds and get you back to doing the activities you enjoy.
Our dedicated wound care doctors and nurses have expertise in the conditions that cause acute and chronic wounds, such as diabetes, infection and poor circulation. They specialize in treating non-healing wounds. This includes those that have not healed after months or even years of treatment.

If you have a wound that has not begun to heal in two weeks or has not completely healed in four to six weeks, it’s chronic. These wounds can develop as a result of complications from diabetes, cancer, burns, infections or other conditions such as vasculitis.
Wound Care Treatments
Acute or chronic conditions can often be prevented with early, advanced wound care intervention. We offer a wide range of advanced treatments, including:
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
- Advanced dressings
- Synthetic skin substitutes
- Surgical debriding
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
During HBOT treatments, patients lie in a pressurized chamber where they breathe 100 percent oxygen. The increased level of oxygen enters the blood and body tissues throughout the body, helping wounds heal quicker.
If you have any of these conditions or chronic wounds, you may benefit from using HBOT:
- Arterial and pressure ulcers
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Non-healing wounds
- Trauma injuries
