Approximately 5,000,000 Americans suffer from wounds that won't heal due to contributing factors ranging from age, diet, smoking and circulatory problems to diabetes, arthritis and kidney disease. The Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Centers at the St. Rose Dominican Hospitals-Rose de Lima and San Martín Campuses offer hospital-based outpatient wound care, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and specialized treatment of chronic wounds and non-responsive conditions, including:
- Diabetic Leg Ulcers
- Lower Leg Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers or Bed Sores
- Bone Infection
- Skin Tears or Lacerations
- Late Effects of Radiation Therapy
- Post-Operation Wounds and Infections
- Failed or Compromised Skin Grafts
In some cases, delivery of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (which involves a patient breathing 100 percent oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber) is beneficial. It stimulates a number of physiological responses in the cells and tissues, promoting healing in even some of the most severe wounds.

Our unique team of doctors and nurses are specially trained to heal even the most complex chronic wounds.
