Advanced wound care modalities heal wounds faster.
When standard front-line treatments are unable to stimulate wound healing, Healogics specialty providers can turn to an array of advanced wound care treatments for a stepped-up approach.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
HBOT is an adjunctive advanced modality therapy available for eligible wound care patients. It involves a pressurized, oxygen-rich environment that stimulates growth of new blood vessels and tissue.
Total Contact Casting
Total contact casting is a treatment for non-infected diabetic foot ulcers that involves encasing the lower leg, foot and toes in a specialized cast that takes the weight off the foot, reducing pressure on the wound and increasing the probability and speed of healing. The cast also limits the rotation of the ankle, to prevent a torquing motion that can inhibit healing.
Cellular and Tissue-Based Products
Cellular and tissue-based products deliver living tissue, stimulating the body’s own natural healing process by activating the body’s inherent ability to repair and regenerate. Innovative therapies are now available that aim to heal or reconstruct diseased tissue and support the regeneration of diseased or injured cells and organs.
Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
Negative pressure wound therapy involves placing a vacuum over a dressed wound, which draws fluid from the body through the wound and stimulates blood flow to the wound. Establishing new blood flow to the wound can aid in kick-starting the body’s own healing mechanisms.
