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

*Vascular evalution

*Laboratory evaluation

*Nutritional evaulation

*Pain management

*Diabetic education

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.

Do you suffer with any of the following conditions?

*Wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing

*Foot or leg ulcers or wounds

*Surgical wounds that have opened

*Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing

Internal injuries or open wounds caused by radiation therapy

*Bone infection (called osteomyelitis)

*Select acute traumatic and crush injuries

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" (IUniverse.com 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
