About This Location
Welcome to the Terrebonne General Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. As a comprehensive wound healing center, we treat all wounds, especially non-healing wounds. Our approach to wound healing is aggressive and comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies that aid and accelerate the healing process.
Our center is staffed by clinicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric medicine. We are dedicated to healing wounds, preventing lower limb loss, and optimizing better outcomes for our patients. If you or a loved one has a wound not healing properly, we encourage you to visit the wound center for an evaluation.
What Our Wound Care Patients Can Expect
Your treatment course depends on wound type. During your first visit, our staff will evaluate your wound and review your medical history. You may also need special tests that give us information about circulation and infection to determine what course of treatment you need.
Once a treatment plan has been prescribed, you will visit the center weekly for specialized treatments and documentation of your healing progress. Keeping appointments and following directions are critical to attaining a positive healing outcome.
Wound Care Treatment Plans
Because non-healing wounds rarely result from a single cause, we begin with a thorough evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine the underlying cause of the wound. A treatment plan is then developed to give patients the best chance for healing.
Depending on the type of wound, the treatment plan may include:
- Infection control
- Restoration of blood flow
- Debridement (removal of dead tissue)
- Skin substitutes
- Compression therapy
- Foot reconstruction
- Skin graft or flap
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
