The Wound Center at Pikeville Medical Center provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments and can help patients avoid loss of limbs and/or reduce the incidence of recurrence.

Non-healing wounds are particularly prevalent among the estimated 25.8 million Americans affected by diabetes. Of those diagnosed, approximately 15 to 25 percent are at risk for developing foot ulcers.

A patient who has a wound that has not begun to heal after two weeks or who hasn’t healed completely within six weeks may benefit from advanced wound care modalities offered at the clinic such as:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • MIST® Ultrasound Therapy
  • Cellular tissue-based products & bio-engineered skin grafting
  • Total contact casting and other off-loading means
  • Compression Wrapping
  • Advance wound dressings

The Wound Center implements a comprehensive plan of care for each individual patient. Successful wound care is a combination of several treatments that work together to achieve healing.
Indications for Wound Therapy include:

  • Diabetic Ulcers
  • Neuropathic Ulcers
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Venous Insufficiency
  • Ischemic Ulcers
  • Traumatic Wounds

A chronic, non-healing wound is not a disease but rather a result of one or more underlying conditions. Non-healing wounds require specialized wound care because of their underlying causes and their failure to proceed through an orderly and timely set of healing stages.

The Wound Center at Pikeville Medical Center offers treatments for numerous chronic, non-healing wounds including diabetic foot ulcer wounds. Non-healing wounds are particularly prevalent among the estimated 25.8 million Americans affected by diabetes. Of those diagnosed, approximately 15 to 25 percent are at risk for developing foot ulcers.

We offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) which involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. HBOT is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness but has also proven effective in treating other serious conditions and wounds.

Approved indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy include:

  • Compromised grafts and flaps
  • Late effects of radiation therapy
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Necrotizing infections such as necrotizing fasciitis
  • Surgical wounds
  • Soft-tissue radionecrosis
  • Diabetic lower extremity ulcers
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Crush injury

Depending on your diagnosis, treatments can last four or more weeks. Each session lasts 90 minutes and services are offered Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
