Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, which partners with
Healogics™, was recently honored with the Center of Distinction
Award for achieving outstanding patient outcomes for 12 consecutive months.
With a healing rate of 98 percent and an average healing time that is six
days faster than the national average, Hoag ranks among the top 25 percent
of over 500 Healogics wound care centers in operation nationwide. As one
of only seven centers in the state to receive this distinction, Hoag has
patient satisfaction scores higher than 92 percent.
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center provides specialized
treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores
or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments.
Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and
immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead
to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required
for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical
care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That's where Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center can
help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement,
hyperbaric oxygen therapy, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient
education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place
to turn. The center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including
infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy,
laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic
education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.
In addition to these comprehensive treatments, the adjunctive use of hyperbaric
oxygen therapy has been proven effective in reducing swelling, fighting
infection, and building new blood vessels, ultimately producing healthy tissue.
Hoag Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine Center has
locations in Newport Beach and Irvine. Both centers were especially designed for
patients to receive high-level wound care and hyperbaric treatment while
feeling the comforts of home.
