Wound Care & Hyperbarics


If you are suffering the effects of a non-healing wound, Bakersfield Memorial is here to help.

Our Team

Our team of doctors and nurses is dedicated to treating wounds, including many that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbarics also specializes in amputation prevention. You have an increased risk for amputation if you have a diabetic foot ulcer and/or Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD ). Don’t wait to get our team of specialists involved. Regardless of stage of the disease, we can help to treat it.

Time doesn't necessarily heal all wounds, so it is important to know the warning signs of potentially chronic, slow-healing wounds. If you have a wound that hasn't started to get significantly better in a month, or healed entirely in two months, the Center for Wound Care and Hyperbarics can help.
