Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center

Healing Starts Here

Each year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation and other conditions prevent millions of Americans from enjoying life. If you're one of them, we can help. Here you'll find the expertise and experience you need to heal more quickly and completely.

One of only a handful of hospitals in Southern California to offer the benefits of hyperbaric therapy, we use today's most advanced techniques, technology and materials to help you get back to doing the things you love.

Specialized Care for Problem Wounds

We treat patients with virtually every type of wound, including: diabetic foot wounds, failing skin grafts, pressure ulcers (bed sores), non-healing surgical incisions, venous ulcers, neuropathic ulcers, traumatic injuries, chronic osteomyelitis (bone infection), inflammatory ulcers and other wounds that have not shown signs of improvement in 30 days.

Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center

State-of-the-Art Treatment

Over the past decade, there have been numerous advances in treating wounds - and you'll find them here. From hyperbaric oxygen therapy to growth factor therapy, we use each new breakthrough to accelerate healing, including:

  • Negative pressure wound therapy
  • Pressure off-loading devices (total contact casting)
  • Lymphedema management
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Growth factor therapy
  • Bioengineered skin substitute

An Expert Team

Led by a board certified vascular surgeon and wound care expert, our multidisciplinary team includes certified wound clinicians, nurse specialists, physical and occupational therapists, as well as respiratory therapists certified in hyperbaric medicine. After identifying the specific causes of your non-healing wound, our specialists begin an individualized and comprehensive care plan - coordinating with your primary care or referring physician to ensure your treatment supports your overall health and medical needs. A combination of unusual expertise and remarkable compassion allows our wound care team to consistently earn near-perfect patient satisfaction.

Lymphedema Services

Lymphedema therapy helps relieve swelling caused by trauma, surgery, infection or disease. Our experienced occupational therapists, certified in lymphedema therapy and massage, can help the body reabsorb accumulated fluid and reduce swelling. Within our Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center, you'll find private treatment rooms solely dedicated to the comfort and optimal management of lymphedema patients.

Hyperbaric Medicine

State-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy is available to help troublesome wounds caused by diabetes, circulatory disorders, compromised skin grafts, necrotizing soft tissue infections, and certain other conditions. This innovative treatment allows patients to breathe pure oxygen, causing the blood to carry 15 to 20 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body's tissues. Because the body's own wound-healing mechanisms are oxygen dependent, hyperbaric oxygen therapy successfully stimulates cell growth, improves circulation and increases immune function. Usually administered daily, patients are able to relax, watching television or listening to music, inside a clear, comfortable chamber, while a respiratory therapist certified in hyperbaric medicine carefully monitors the session.
