Commonly treated wounds
Conditions that affect your ability to heal
A number of factors may contribute to non-healing wounds, such as: increased age, obesity, heart and vascular disease, cancer treatment and traumatic injuries.
Wound treatment options
Chronic wounds are wounds that have not healed by themselves over time. Chronic wounds may be managed and healed with a variety of treatments.
At HonorHealth you will have the most up-to-date and state of the art treatment options available. Our clinicians work collaboratively with doctors and other specialties at HonorHealth including interventional radiology, interventional cardiology, infectious disease, endocrinology and the lymphedema clinic. Together, we will carefully formulate a personalized treatment plan for your wound.
Negative pressure wound therapy
Negative pressure wound therapy is used to accelerate healing and increase blood flow for acute and chronic wounds. The procedure involves the use of a sealed wound dressing attached to a pump to create a negative pressure environment in the wound.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used in treating some chronic problems, and also more serious or urgent conditions. If your wound is not responding to advanced treatment, your specialist may explore other treatment options such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
