About Us:

The GBMC Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center is one of the oldest comprehensive wound care centers in the country and has been providing high quality care to its patients for more than 20 years. Offering the latest advancements and modalities in wound healing, the Center houses six monoplace hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) chambers, making it one of the largest monoplace HBOT facility in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic United States. The Center is designed to treat patients requiring either wound care, HBOT, or both. Managed by Healogics, Inc., the largest wound care management service in the country, the Center was awarded with the 2010 and 2013 Center of Distinction Award for excellence in wound healing.

With a multidisciplinary approach, experts in vascular, general, plastic, and podiatric surgery as well as lymphedema, internal medicine, and hyperbaric medicine, collaborate to determine the best treatment options for each patient. The Center's team consists of a large panel of board-certified physicians specially trained in advanced wound care treatments and therapies and an experienced staff of wound care nurse case managers who ensure consistency in each individual's treatment plan. Although the Center's primary focus is outpatient treatment, inpatient wound care and hyperbaric needs may be accommodated on a case-by-case basis. The expert staff utilizes clinical practice guidelines and evidence-based medicine to provide the best practice treatments in wound care and HBOT.
Latest News:

There are millions of cases of chronic wounds in the United States, and the numbers are growing. Diabetes, increased age, obesity and other factors all contribute to the rising number of chronic wound cases illustrating the tremendous need for wound care

Diabetes affects 8 percent of the total U.S. population — an estimated 26 million people — and 26 percent of Americans over the age of 65. The incidence of chronic wounds, especially foot ulcers, increases among those diagnosed with diabetes. One in four diabetics will suffer a diabetic foot ulcer and are 10 times more likely to require amputation at some point in their lives. Each year, approximately 700,000 diabetics will undergo amputation. However, studies show that specialized wound care treatment can help reduce such complications, optimize healing, reduce hospital stays, and help avoid amputations.
