Banner – University Medical Center Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Clinic is part of the Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix. The clinic offers treatment options for patients with complicated, chronic and non-healing wounds. Our multi-disciplinary team, which includes family practice physicians, plastic surgeons, podiatrists, vascular surgeons, general surgeons and orthopedic surgeons, all have advanced training in wound care. Our clinicians have national certification and expertise in caring for patients with wounds. We use a case management model to help patients navigate through the complex health care arena.
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
