The TMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine offers the most advanced wound care therapies and is recognized as a Robert A. Warriner, III, MD Center of Excellence and a Center of Distinction by Healogics™.

Treating Non-healing Wounds
If a wound doesn’t improve after four weeks, or does not heal within eight weeks, it is considered a non-healing wound. Non-healing wounds can cause deeper skin erosion, infection and complications which can be damaging to organs and limbs, and even be life threatening — especially for those with diabetes and heart conditions.
The TMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine provides advanced wound care for a variety of wounds, including:
- Lower extremity diabetic wounds
- Ulcers from poor circulation
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Surgical wounds
- Pressure sores
- Resistant bone infections
- Radiation injury
The Center's staff, which includes physicians, nurses and technicians trained in wound care and management, work closely with your primary care physician to create an individualized treatment plan to help speed the healing process. This may include visits to the center as well as detailed instructions for home care. Depending on the type of wound, treatments may include medication, surgery, podiatric care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
During HBOT, a patient breathes 100 percent oxygen while relaxing in a pressurized chamber. This delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and the wound, which rapidly accelerates the healing process. The staff at the TMC Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine works with your primary physician to discuss your HBOT treatment program and keep him or her updated on your progress, Remember, you'll need to keep seeing your doctor for routine medical care.
Please complete the new patient forms and bring them with you on your first visit.
