Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine

Heal Better. Heal Faster.

Up to 10 million people in the United States suffer from chronic, non-healing wounds. Many wounds can be treated by primary care physicians. Chronic wounds, however, that have failed many weeks or years of routine care require advanced care–the kind of specialized treatment that the Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Paradise Valley Hospital is designed to provide.

Our mission is to create knowledge and conditions to facilitate healing for people with acute and chronic wounds. If your patient comes in with a wound, perhaps a stasis ulcer of the ankle or a diabetic foot wound for example, our expert team will create a plan to fit your patient’s needs. We can also provide hyperbaric medicine treatments in our two single-person chambers, and we have vascular screening programs. We have the resources and expertise to help your patient’s wounds heal very quickly.

Primary care clinics generally do not offer specialized wound care, and treating wounds in that setting can be challenging. An abundance of wound care patients tends to use up primary care time, and this often makes it difficult for other patients to access care. By utilizing our services at the Paradise Valley Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine, you can avoid many of these obstacles and improve the outcomes of your patients.
