Chronic, non-healing wounds, those that haven’t shown signs of
improvement in several weeks or are not responding to typical
treatments, need extra help to heal. Difficult wounds of this type are
often caused by injury, disease or poor blood supply. Trinity Hospital
of Augusta provides specialized treatment for these types of wounds.
Before treatment begins at the Wound Healing Center, our trained doctors and nurses will evaluate your wound and conduct tests if needed. Treatment plans usually involve regular visits to the center and we remain in constant communication with your other doctors to make sure that your healing process is moving along.
Trinity Hospital of Augusta’s hyperbaric medicine treatment options surround patients with difficult wounds with 100% oxygen in a comfortable, pressurized chamber. This saturation promotes the body’s natural immune system and healing responses, allowing wounds to heal more easily, from the inside out. Hyperbaric treatments last between 90 minutes and 2 hours and are performed daily Monday through Friday. Our facility offers televisions mounted above the chamber so that you can watch movies or listen to music to help the time pass.
