The Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Center at Chandler Regional offers specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time. Some of the treatments offered at Chandler Regional’s Wound Healing Center include negative pressure wound therapy, debridement, application of cellular-based tissue or skin substitutes to the wound, offloading or total contact casts, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
“I am extremely proud of this outstanding program which is serving a previously neglected population of life threatening chronic wounds,” said Brian Paterick, MD, medical director of the Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Center at Chandler Regional.
