CHC Wound Healing CenterThe Community Health Center of Branch County Wound Healing Center is staffed with a unique team of doctors, nurses and therapists all dedicated to healing chronic wounds. Treatment plans are developed just for you to help you get back on your feet again.
Some potential candidates are people with diabetes who have wounds that are slow to heal; people with wounds that haven't shown improvement in four weeks; people with certain bone and skin infections; people with radiation injuries; and people with compromised or failing skin grafts or flaps.
One of the highly specialized treatments offered at the center is hyperbaric oxygen therapy which works by surrounding the patient with 100 percent oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. This increases the amount of oxygen in the patient's blood and, in the case of wounds, allows red blood cells to pass more easily through the plasma into the wound to heal it from the inside out. Diabetic foot wounds are an excellent example of wounds that may benefit most from this type of treatment.
