Hialeah Hospital’s Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Offers New Treatment Option

Feb 17, 2020

Hialeah, Fla. (September 29, 2015) – Patients of The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at Hialeah Hospital now have the option of undergoing hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This method of treatment helps the body’s oxygen-dependent, wound-healing mechanisms function more efficiently. While enclosed in a chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure, patients breathe pure oxygen, saturating their blood plasma and allowing it to carry 15 to 20 times the normal amount of healing oxygen to the body’s tissues.

“Being able to implement this latest advancement in chronic wound care gives us even more treatment options for our patients, making our center truly comprehensive,” said Ben A. Rodriguez, CEO of Hialeah Hospital. “I look forward to our growth and enhanced presence in the community.”

Up to 18 percent of wound care patients may require HBOT treatments, which are administered in a comfortable environment, attended by skilled, experienced technicians. Approved indications for HBOT include but are not limited to: diabetic ulcers of the lower extremities, compromised skin grafts and flap, crush injury/acute traumatic peripheral ischemia and progressive necrotizing infections.

A member of the Healogics™ network, the Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine at Hialeah Hospital employs a rigorous scientific approach to explore, test, find and develop clinically proven methods and technologies to help reintroduce the body’s innate ability to heal. The network, comprised of academic medical centers, hospitals and thousands of professionals, is committed to advancing wound healing by creating, sharing and activating wound prevention and care expertise.
