Our multidisciplinary approach to wound care is to provide quality, efficient, and compassionate care by coordinating traditional and advanced treatment modalities to aid in the healing process.

Wound & Hyperbaric Center: Helping Our Community Heal

Cobre Valley’s Wound & Hyperbaric Center specializes in the treatment of chronic wounds. As a comprehensive wound care center, we provide evaluation, individualized treatment plans, and compassionate support for each patient.

Our team of health professionals has specialized training in advanced wound care and hyperbaric medicine. We provide a full range of comprehensive services, including:

  • Full wound assessment, including assessment of the underlying cause of chronic wound
  • Debridement
  • Compression therapy
  • Xenografting
  • Edema control
  • Non-invasive vascular assessment
  • Coordination of care with other providers

Wounds that do not heal can cause serious complications, such as pain, infection, or even amputation. If you develop a complicated or non-healing wound after receiving standard care, please call us to schedule an appointment.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an effective treatment for many types of chronic, non-healing wounds. This non-invasive, painless approach infuses the bloodstream and tissues with high levels of oxygen, enhancing the body’s ability to heal.

During HBO therapy, you breathe 100% pure oxygen while inside a clear, pressurized chamber. This process enables your blood to carry much more oxygen to the tissues, promoting new tissue and blood vessel growth. The high oxygen level also helps fight infections caused by a variety of bacteria and promotes spontaneous healing.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is performed in a special hyperbaric chamber in which the air can be compressed to a pressure greater than normal. During treatment, you may watch TV or a movie, rest, or listen to music while you breathe normally.

The course of treatment varies by diagnosis, but patients typically receive HBO therapy five days a week for approximately four to six weeks. One treatment takes about two hours and is quite comfortable for most patients.
