Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care, a facility of Carolinas HealthCare System Union, has been successfully treating patients with chronic, non-healing wounds and helping to improve their quality of life since 2005.
Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care's exceptional team of doctors and nurses is dedicated to treating wounds, including many that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. Patients at the Center are evaluated to determine underlying conditions, such as diabetes, pressure, poor circulation, venous status, or other conditions that might inhibit the natural healing process. After the assessment, an individualized and comprehensive treatment program is developed for the patient and treatment begins.
Types of wounds that can benefit from therapies provided at the Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care include:
- Diabetic foot ulcers
- Venous statis ulcers
- Pressure sores
- Wounds resulting from traumatic injury or incisional breakdown
- Other non-healing wounds
In 2011, Carolinas HealthCare System Wound Care began offering hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for patients who suffer from chronic wounds that are not responding to traditional therapies. HBOT places people in a pressurized chamber where they breathe 100 percent oxygen. The treatment delivers more oxygen to the body's tissues, which can help heal wounds and save limbs of people with diabetes.
