Wound and Hyperbaric Treatment

Diabetic foot ulcers and other types of lower extremity chronic wounds put you at great risk of amputation. Some ulcers can progress rapidly to amputation, and once it starts, you may face mortality in three to five years.

Amputation is preventable.

Our Wound and Hyperbaric Office offers comprehensive care for patients with ulcers and chronic wounds. With our integrated, whole-person approach to care, our patients find relief from their symptoms from the very first visit.

In addition to wound care providers, our patients have access to vascular doctors and cardiologists to collaborate treatment for any underlying conditions. It’s part of our unique 9-in-1 Solution that makes our center a standout in Bakersfield.

From regular screenings and preventative care to advanced diagnostic testing and onsite treatments, the Wound and Hyperbaric Center offers first-rate care right here in Bakersfield.

Our team of highly-credentialed physicians and support staff are passionate about our mission:

  • Prevent amputation
  • Provide quick and lasting relief for patients suffering from chronic wounds and other venous and cardiologic issues
  • Help patients maintain mobility and lead longer, fuller, healthier lives.

Treatment for Ulcers and Chronic Wounds

Do not put off seeking treatment for chronic wounds – even if they are painless. Doing so will put you at risk of amputation.

If you have circulation problems, diabetes, or a cardiovascular condition, getting regular screenings and treatment can prevent major health issues and keep you walking stronger and living longer.

Our state-of-the-art diagnostics and treatments are performed with top-of-the-line equipment in our private, comfortable office setting.

We treat the following types of chronic wounds:

Venous ulcers – Often caused by venous diseases and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), venous ulcers cause inflammation, drainage, and pain.

Arterial ulcers – Impaired circulation, diabetes, atherosclerotic disease, and other conditions can cause these types of deep, painful ulcers.

Diabetic ulcers – Occur on the feet and heels in 15 percent of people with diabetes. Painless but dangerous because they can quickly lead to amputation.

Pressure ulcers – May develop in bedridden patients and others who must stay in one position for a long period of time. They are the result of constant pressure on one area.

Relief for Chronic Wound Symptoms

If you have lower extremity wounds or any of the following symptoms and conditions, the Wound and Hyperbaric Center can help:

  • Neuropathy in the feet and legs
  • Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
  • Critical limb ischemia
  • Varicose veins
  • Leg and foot pain, swelling, and heaviness

Comprehensive, World-Class Care

Personalized and comprehensive treatment options for patients with wounds and other conditions:

Debridement: Uses surgical, mechanical, enzymatic, autolytic, and maggot therapy, or some combination, to clean the wound and remove dead or damaged skin and tissue.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: Exposes patients to pure oxygen in a pressurized, full-immersion monoplace chamber, improving oxygen supply to the wound, thus aiding the healing process.

Mist Therapy: A saline mist delivers low-frequency ultrasound waves to the wound to increase vasodilation and stimulate cells to encourage healing.

Total Contact Cast (TCC) Offloading: A specially-designed cast relieves pressure on the limb where the chronic wound is located, allowing it to heal more easily.

Advanced Biologics: Skin substitutes (or cellular tissue products) close the wound, control pain, and replace skin function to promote healing. They create a microenvironment conducive to wound healing.
