The benefits of wound care treatment
With every patient interaction, we strive to prevent complications like infections, hospitalization or amputation. The wound care specialists at the Advanced Wound Care Center at TriStar Southern Hills can help with the following wounds:
- Diabetic Ulcers
- Venous Ulcers
- Arterial Ulcers
- Radiation tissue injury
- Non-healing surgical wounds
- Soft tissue infections
- Pressure Injuries
- Vasculitis Ulcer
- Infected Wounds

Depending on the causes of non-healing, there are a variety of advanced treatments available to speed healing including bioengineered skin substitutes, therapeutic dressing materials and antimicrobial topical therapies. Growth factors - substances that stimulate healing - might be applied topically. About 15 percent of chronic wounds may also benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which delivers oxygen at a rate two to three times higher than normal air pressure inside a chamber.
