Wounds that can be treated include pressure, diabetic, venous and arterial ulcers, surgical wounds, wounds caused by infections, traumatic wounds and wounds due to circulatory or autoimmune disorders.
During a thorough evaluation, the team at the Banner – University Medical Center Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic will find out what is interfering with the wound’s normal healing process. After a treatment plan is developed, patients, families and caregivers are provided all of the training needed to ensure it is carried out successfully.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, a specialized treatment that accelerates the natural healing process, is a safe and comfortable treatment that involves breathing 100-percent oxygen under pressure within a controlled chamber. This therapy, which is offered on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, is safe and comfortable for a variety of disorders in addition to wounds. These include infections that irreversibly destroy tissue and organs, burns, tissue injured by radiation, carbon monoxide poisoning and crush injuries
Banner Health and University of Arizona Health Network merged to form Banner – University Medicine. At the heart of this merger is academic medicine – teaching, patient care and research across three academic medical centers: Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix, Banner – University Medical Center Tucson and Banner – University Medical Center South.
Across its campuses, Banner – University Medicine educates new medical students, and provides graduate medical education to those who go on to touch lives across Arizona, the nation and the world.
Academic medical centers provide both traditional and advanced patient care. Our patients have access to comprehensive and life-changing treatments thanks to our large research portfolios that generate new ideas, leading to novel concepts and therapies. We are also deeply embedded in our communities, often serving as safety net providers and responders during public health outbreaks, natural disasters, and local crises.
