The Wound Care Center HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley
Welcome to The Wound Care Center Your Wound Care Experts
Get back your quality of life and be able to live your life to its fullest
If you or a loved one has a wound or a sore that has not started to heal within a month or has not healed entirely in two months, have what is referred to as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound. There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic and there are many types of wounds. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other types result from pressure sores and trauma. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.
At HackensackUMC at Pascack Valley’s Wound Care Center, all we do is heal wounds. Our team of experienced wound care specialists will work with you and your physician to assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing.
Our treatment plans are designed to complement the care your own physician provides, ensuring that your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you. Most treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMO’s and other private insurance plans and may include:
*Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
*Advanced ‘smart’ topical wound care dressings
*Infectious disease management
As the experts in wound healing, the Wound Care Center has a proven track record of healing wounds, even those whose wound has not responded to other therapies can see significant improvement at our center.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) Therapy is a treatment in which the patient breathes 100% pure oxygen while inside a pressurized chamber. The air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about two and a half times greater than the normal pressure in the atmosphere. This ‘hyperbaric’ (or high pressure) dose of oxygen helps your blood carry more oxygen to organs and connective tissues to promote wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection. HBO can be the primary treatment or it can be used in combination with other treatments. HBO therapy is an outpatient procedure that is provided once daily for approximately four to six weeks. One treatment takes about two hours and is quite comfortable for most patients.
