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 has received numerous awards 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:

According to the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society, the average person takes 10,000 steps each day which adds up to more than three million steps per year. June serves as Wound Care Awareness Month, and is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of foot health. People with diabetes should be especially concerned with the health of their feet. An estimated 29.1 million people (9.3 percent of the population) have diabetes, and nearly 28 percent are undiagnosed. Diabetes can affect the nerves which can cause nerve damage for some people. When this happens, the nerves no longer perceive pain due to numbness and therefore do not alert a person to potential injury.

For people living with diabetes, a poor defense against infection and damage to blood circulation can complicate problems with the feet causing them to become more vulnerable to injury. In 2010, about 73,000 non-traumatic lower-limb amputations were performed on adults aged 20 years or older with diagnosed diabetes. This accounts for 60 percent of non-traumatic lower-limb amputations. People with an amputation have a 50 percent mortality rate within five years. Diabetes related amputations may result from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, especially diabetic foot ulcers. It is estimated that 25 percent of all diabetics will develop a diabetic foot ulcer.
