Who We Are



Welcome to the web site of the Center For Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. As one of the nation's leading centers for wound healing, we see a complex array of hard-to-heal wounds in patients from all races, nationalities and economic backgrounds. Hard-to-heal wounds come in all shapes and sizes, and can affect many parts of the body.

Our approach to wound healing is holistic in that we look at the entire person, not just the wound. How is the wound affecting the patient's life? What other lifestyle factors might hinder successful wound healing? What genetic factors contribute to the patient's overall well-being?

We use an array of advanced techniques to heal the more difficult wounds including vac therapy, apligraphs, total contact casts, and if indicated hyperbaric oxygen. Our wound certified nurses are experts in wound care and applying advanced treatments.

With a success rate that is consistently above 90% (closer to 95% most of the time), we find that as we heal a patient's wound, another metamorphosis happens as the person begins to regain hope, sees a positive outcome is on the horizon and realizes that they will repair a tear in their body's largest organ (the skin).

We see a lot of patients who have diabetes, but we also see patients who have had complications from various types of surgeries that have created difficult situations that, to some, seem overwhelming.

We welcome the challenges each patient brings with their specific wound healing problems, and we enjoy the wonderful feeling that comes from helping a person get a sense of closure...literally.
