Wound Care - Healing Wounds to Change Lives
It is estimated that over eight million Americans suffer from chronic wounds. Wounds may develop from a variety of different medical conditions, and may not heal for many different reasons. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound. The skilled staff at South Central Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine provides a state-of-the-art center with a comprehensive approach to wound care treatment that advances the healing process.
South Central Wound Care Clinic, located on the ground floor of South Central Regional Medical Center, opened in February 2010. The clinic features four patient rooms and two hyperbaric chambers, along with a full medical staff, to provide assistance in the healing process.
“Since our opening in 2010, we have preformed almost 10,000 wound care treatments,” says David McGowin, Director of South Central Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. “We recently hosted an open house for the medical community to showcase our advanced procedures.”
Health care providers, with the supervision of Stacy Smithers, M.D., General Surgeon with Laurel Surgery Clinic and Medical Director of South Central Wound Care, patients are provided individualized treatment plans that include the most advanced wound care therapies available today, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy allows the patient to breathe pure oxygen in a pressurized room for the treatment of wounds that will not heal.
