Thanks to the Center for Wound Healing and Hyerbaric Medicine, I was able to
attend a bridal shower and wedding in my family! If it hadnít been for the
excellent care I received at the Center, I might have had to miss these special
Following a hysterectomy in June, the incision became infected. A call to the
Center resulted in additional surgery to clean out the wound to prepare for the
I also developed diabetes following the surgery. When the diabetes developed,
the Would Healing Center put me in touch with someone who discussed my
newly-diagnosed condition with me.
The treatment I received from the medical staff and the nurses at the Center for
Wound Healing and Hyperbaric was wonderful. Everyone was concerned about my case
and they were helpful whenever I needed them. If I experienced concerns about
the VAC, they were available to see me at any time.
I know that my wound may have been minor compared to others that the Wound
Healing Center treats. But, the dedicated staff at the Center made it possible
for me to share in the happiness of my nieceís bridal shower and wedding.

As a career educator, my life in the classroom changed dramatically several
years ago as I faced the diagnosis of uterine cancer. My life changed just as
dramatically as my condition resulted in treatment required at the Center for
Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. Facing the possibility of cutting my
teaching career short and retiring early, my circumstances changed favorably so
that I could return to the classroom.
Following a complete hysterectomy, I underwent extensive chemotherapy. At the
site of the incision, unfortunately, a non-healing wound developed. The wound
was unsightly and a persistent discharge required that I dress the wound every
day. I was forced to take a year off from my teaching job.
The doctors at the Trinitas Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
Center evaluated my wound and recommended that I undergo a combination of VAC
therapy and treatments in the hyperbaric chamber to hasten the healing. I began
a regimen of healing treatments five days a week for 40 days.
The initial prognosis for my wound was not encouraging. But, thanks to the
Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine, I achieved great results.
As I dealt with this dramatic change in my life, I thought I would have to take
early retirement from teaching. Now, following the highly successful VAC therapy
and oxygenation treatments, I have returned to teaching and have a much higher
level of energy, too. Iím looking forward to retirement again, this time for all
the right reasons.
