Wound Care

The Wound Care Clinic at Sidney Health Center is a comprehensive outpatient service designed for the treatment of non-healing or difficult wounds. 

A cut or sore that simply won’t heal may be a cause for real concern, especially if you are diabetic, suffer from other chronic diseases, a serious illness, or traumatic injury. At Sidney Health Center’s Wound Care Clinic, we use advanced wound care techniques including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. This promotes healing of difficult wounds – in a relaxed, comfortable setting. 

Wound Care Treatments include: 

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Negative Pressure Therapy
  • Biologic Dressings
  • Enzymatic Debridement
  • Comprehensive Wound Care

Sidney Health Center’s Wound Care Service provides a thorough diagnostic examination of the wound and the patient. We begin by examining the problem areas and learning about your overall health. In addition, we consult with your primary care provider to ensure coordinated, seamless care. Our goal is to understand the nature of your wound and its underlying causes to help design a customized program for you. 

If Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is the best course of action, you may undergo as many as 30 to 40 treatments to achieve maximum benefit. This type of therapy is a non-invasive treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Oxygen, when delivered to a patient in a hyperbaric chamber, greatly increases the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to body tissues by blood. All the benefits provided by hyperbaric oxygen therapy are a result of this extra oxygen being carried within the bloodstream. 

Conditions that benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy include: 

  • Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome, and other Acute Traumatic Ischemias: Injuries that result in reduced blood flow and tissue damage.
  • Delayed Radiation Injury: Damage from radiation therapy that appears six months or even years later.
  • Enhancement of Healing in Selected Problem Wounds: To help wounds that are slow to heal.
  • Diabetic Ulcers: For serious wounds in people with diabetes.
  • Gas Gangrene: A severe infection causing tissue death.
  • Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections: Severe infections causing the death of body tissues.
  • Osteomyelitis (Refractory): Hard-to-treat bone infections.
  • Severe Anemia when blood transfusions are not an option.
  • Severe Infections of the skin and bone.
  • Skin Grafts and Flaps (Compromised): When transplanted skin or tissue isn’t getting enough blood supply.
  • Sudden Hearing Loss without cause.
  • Sudden and Painless Vision Loss in one eye due to blockage of blood.
  • Thermal Burns: Follow-up treatment plan from a burn center for severe burns caused by heat.

During the course of your treatment, your progress will be monitored carefully and managed by a highly specialized team of caregivers, lead by our medical director. Best of all, you can look forward to a comforting, nurturing approach to healing, including the convenience of outpatient treatment.
