Specializing in Chronic Wound Healing

If you're suffering from a non-healing wound, you're not alone. Every year, chronic wounds, caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions, keeps millions of Americans just like you from doing things they love to do. CMC Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Center can help you get your life back. Our unique multidisciplinary team of dedicated providers and nurses treat more of these wounds than anyone else. Many patients find wounds that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment can be treated. It's all we do. The CMC Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Center supports Cumberland and its surrounding counties.


Who Needs Wound Care?

There are a variety of circumstances in which a person may need wound care. They include, but are not limited to:


•    Ulcers (pressure, diabetic, neuropathic or ischemic)
•    Surgical Wounds
•    Vasculitis
•    Peristomal skin irritations
•    Soft tissue radionecrosis
•    Actinomycosis
•    Preservation of compromised skin grafts and flaps
•    Crush injury/acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
•    Progressive necrotizing infections (necrotizing fasciitis)
•    Osteoradionecrosis
•    Traumatic wounds



Your Healing Program

When your test results are in, we will put together a treatment program based on your special  needs. This program will include regular visits to the CMC Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Center to provide treatment, evaluate progress and make any changes that might be needed. You (or your caregiver) will be given detailed instructions in home care, nutrition, dressing (bandage) changes and protecting the wound from further injury.

We have a state-of-the-art ultrasonic debridement device and hyperbaric chambers to aid in the healing time of some wounds.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The hyperbaric chambers are a part of our wound care healing tools. Our noninvasive clear acrylic therapy chamber provides 100% oxygen to promote the optimum healing opportunity. While breathing pure oxygen, the patient’s blood plasma becomes saturated, carrying 20 to 30 times the normal amount of oxygen to the body’s tissue. The ultimate result is the body’s natural wound healing mechanisms (which are oxygen dependent) are able to function more efficiently. Continued use of hyperbaric oxygen treatment increases the body’s immune and healing response. Our trained staff will educate you with the knowledge to complete this treatment with the best results.Conditions that may benefit from hyperbaric oxygen treatment:


•    Diabetic wounds of the lower extremity
•    Wounds that have not healed in several weeks
•    Post-radiation tissue injury
•    Crush injuries
•    Compromised skin grafts and flaps
•    Gangrene
•    Pressure ulcers
•    Necrotizing soft tissue infections
•    Carbon monoxide poisoning
•    Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
•    Osteomyelitis
•    Actinomycosis


You're a Vital Part of the Program

Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. You must keep your appointments, follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely between visits. At any time you or your family members have questions, our staff is available.

Disclaimer: Not all conditions can be treated in this facility. Some conditions may need to be referred to an emergency center.
