Wound Care & Hyperbaric Clinic
When a wound goes from a minor discomfort to an ongoing problem, pain and fear are quite common. However, there are effective treatments for wounds that won’t heal on their own – and our multi-disciplinary team of wound care and hyperbaric doctors and nurses at Dorothy Blackwell Wound Care Clinic can provide care in outpatient, inpatient and home care settings.
We treat diabetic, arterial, surgical, collagen vascular, and other non-healing wounds, as well as venomous insect bites and outpatient burn treatment.
Treatment options include:
- Hyperbaric medicine
- Growth factor therapy and bioengineered skin substitutes
- Advanced wound dressings
- General surgery
- Compression therapy
- Nutritional evaluation and education
- Patient and caregiver education
- Physical therapy
- Coordination with home care
- Diabetes education
- Behavioral health counseling
Hyperbaric Medicine Services
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves the systematic delivery of oxygen to patients. The patient is placed in a hyperbaric chamber, which is then pressurized to between two and three times the atmospheric pressure. While under pressure, the patient breathes 100% oxygen.
While our specialists provide hyperbaric therapy at the Wound Care Clinic, not all patients need, or qualify, for this therapy.
Primary care physicians or emergency room personnel may refer many wound care patients, but a referral is not required. You may call and schedule an appointment at (405) 742-5888. The wound care clinic is in Suite 102 in the Medical Office Building on the east edge of Stillwater Medical Center.
