Let us help you heal. 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, and poor blood supply. The Wound Healing Center at Easton-Hospital wound care professionals use a variety of new and traditional technologies to help patients heal successfully, in comfort, close to home at our facility, or even at home with our outpatient services
90% of the patients who come to the Wound Healing Center at Easton Hospital with chronic wounds heal within 16 weeks of starting treatment. A recent patient satisfaction survey showed that 90% of patients surveyed would recommend the Wound Healing Center to a friend or relative.
Your team includes specialists knowledgeable in surgery, surgical podiatry, infectious diseases, vascular diseases and internal medicine. Our physicians and nurses are specially trained in advanced wound healing techniques, including debridement, skin substantively and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
On your first visit, the wound healing team will evaluate your wound, review your medical history and general health as well as request special tests. All tests can be done right here at Easton Hospital. Once your test results are in, our wound healing team, will develop a treatment program that involves regular visits to the center for treatment. You will also be instructed on in-home wound care, dressing changes and ways to protect yourself from further skin breakdown.
For some patients who require additional special treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is available. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses 100% oxygen at higher than normal pressures to enhance healing in problem wounds.
