At the LewisGale Advanced Wound Centers, our patients benefit from a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach that’s been shown to speed healing, help prevent complications and reduce recurrence rates.
Leading the Region in Wound Healing Technology
We offer Southwest Virginia’s most advanced technology for the treatment of chronic wounds, including:
- Doppler technology and transcutaneous oxygen monitoring — Allows us to assist physicians in assessing both the circulation and the amount of oxygen available to surrounding tissue. Arteriography (X-ray of the blood vessels) is also available.
- Wound care digital photography — Enables our care team to conduct a complete medical evaluation and individualized wound care assessment in order to monitor the healing progress.
- Advanced dressing regimens — Our wound healing specialists employ moist wound care principles and use advanced technologies such as the negative pressure device, biological skin substitutes and multilayer compression wraps.
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) — This treatment combines an oxygen-enriched atmosphere with high pressure to increase the oxygen in the blood plasma. Learn more about the use of HBOT in the Advanced Wound Center at LewisGale Medical Center.
Our wound healing specialists also provide ostomy services, as well as prevention and education programs targeted to high-risk populations.
