Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine Center
For most patients, wound healing is a relatively quick and simple process. But for some, problem wounds can lead to a severely compromised quality of life and sometimes even the loss of a limb. Wounds that resist healing for longer than 3 weeks should be considered for referral to a comprehensive wound treatment center.
The experts at the Jackson Hospital Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine Center combine the latest in wound care treatment with physical therapy, exercise, nutrition, and diabetic counseling. This comprehensive approach treats not only non-healing wounds, but also underlying diseases or conditions. Our program is completely devoted to healing problem wounds and helping our patients reclaim their quality of life.
