We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, outpatient and inpatient wound care services.

Why Wounds Have Trouble Healing

Wounds that are not showing any signs of improvement over several weeks or are not responding to traditional treatments need specialized care to heal properly. These chronic, non-healing wounds typically are caused by underlying factors such as:

  • Medical conditions like diabetes, skin cancer or infection
  • Trauma, burns or other types of injuries
  • Poor nutrition or blood supply

Treatment Options for Slow-Healing Wounds

Hattiesburg Clinic specializes in the management of difficult-to-heal chronic wounds and other wound conditions. If your wound is not responding to typical treatments, you may be a candidate for one or more of the following treatment options:

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Bio-engineered tissue substitutes
  • IV therapy
  • Negative pressure wound therapy
  • Specialized dressings, wraps and pressure castings
  • Debridement (removal of dead or damaged tissue)
  • Wound infection management
  • Diabetic and pressure ulcer management
  • Nutrition and education consulting

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Care

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is one of the most successful and innovative methods used to help wounds heal. Patients can watch TV or listen to music during their session in the hyperbaric oxygen chamber and remain in contact with medical staff through an intercom and headset. Each session lasts around two hours, where patients are surrounded by 100 percent oxygen at a higher-than-normal atmospheric pressure. The goal is to increase the amount of oxygen in the patient’s blood to promote healing from inside the wound. Each wound is different, so it is important to discuss your options with your provider and if they recommend hyperbaric oxygen therapy for wound healing.
