Advanced Wound Care
The Kate Creedon Center for Advanced Wound Care is an outpatient program that focuses on chronic and non-healing wounds such as pressure wounds or leg ulcers. Using advanced treatment methods, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and a case management model, we help patients improve the quality of their lives.
The Center's top-notch team of physicians, working in conjunction with referring physicians and other health care professionals, will determine the best treatment course for each patient. In all cases, the Center's goal is to help patients heal as quickly as possibly, and lead happier, healthier lives free from the pain of chronic wounds.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is one of several advanced treatment methods offered by the Center for Advanced Wound Care. In short, HBOT allows for a 10 times increase in plasma oxygen concentration, thereby reducing swelling and discomfort while also accelerating the wound healing process.
Many different types of hard-to-treat wounds can benefit from HBOT, including non-healing bone and skin infections, compromised skin grafts, crush injuries, and more. Our team of healthcare professionals can determine if HBOT is an appropriate treatment for your type of wound or condition.
