Carle Wound Therapy Services


Wound Healing Treatment

  • Cleaning the wound and converting it to an acute wound so the immune system will help heal it.
  • Moist, advanced wound dressings that reduce pain.
  • Dressings that reduce infection without antibiotics.
  • Cell- and tissue-based technologies to close the wound earlier.
  • Special devices to reduce pressure.
  • Compression wraps to reduce fluid buildup.
  • Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) to speed healing.
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for promoting new cell and blood vessels in non-emergency situations.  


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Since 2005, we have provided patients with specialized HBOT. With this state-of-the-art treatment, pure oxygen helps the body's natural healing process. 

Wounds that commonly benefit from HBOT include:
  • Severe diabetic foot ulcers
  • Chronic bone infection (chest, hip bones, foot and ankle)
  • Delayed radiation effects on bones (lower jaw)
  • Delayed radiation effects on soft tissue (breast, bladder and intestines)
  • Flaps or grafts
  • Skin ulcers due to increased blood flow in arteries
  • Minor crush injuries

Our team consists of certified hyperbaric technologists, nurses and trained hyperbaric physicians-two of whom are board certified in hyperbaric medicine.
