A wound that fails to heal can be frustrating, time-consuming and expensive. If within 30 days, significant improvement has not been made in a wound's healing process, make an appointment at Advocate Trinity Hospital's Wound Care Center. The Center features an interdisciplinary team of experts including medical and surgical physicians and a nursing staff with advanced training in wound care and management. Patients receive a comprehensive evaluation to develop an individualized, aggressive treatment program for nonhealing wounds.
The Wound Care Center offers complete wound care services for patients with difficult wounds, including:
- Soft tissue infections
- Radiation tissue damage
- Problem surgical wounds
Our certified wound care specialists assist patients by demonstrating how to position and change dressings, as well as helping patients obtain home dressing supplies. We utilize pulsed lavage and other treatments to help promote proper healing once patients return home.
The Center also features two hyperbaric oxygen chambers. If a patient’s wounds qualify for this type of treatment, the patient will breathe 100 percent oxygen under pressure while resting comfortably inside the roomy, plexiglass chamber. This noninvasive, painless treatment known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, increases the patient’s oxygen level in the bloodstream. This enhances the body’s natural healing, strengthens the immune system, and often results in a return to an active lifestyle.
