Wound Healing Center at King's Daughters
The experts at King’s Daughters Wound Healing Center help patients
and their physicians tackle the most difficult non-healing wounds. Because
non-healing wounds are often a symptom of underlying conditions, we offer
a multidisciplinary approach with the three-part goal of healing, preservation
Our team consists of physicians, nurses and other allied health professionals.
Specialists in the fields of vascular surgery, wound care, dermatology,
endocrinology, infection control, pain management and physical/rehabilitation
medicine are consulted as needed.
Our team includes five nurses who have earned certification as wound care
nurses from the national Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification
Board; an American Board of Wound Management-certified clinician; a board-certified
podiatrist/wound care specialist; and a board-certified plastic/reconstructive surgeon.
We provide care for patients with surgical wounds, snake, spider or insect
bites, skin grafts, diabetic neuropathy, pressure ulcers, osteomyelitis
infections and more. We provide specialized services for patients with
stomas, including colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy, including care for:
- Peristomal skin problems
- Stomal complications
- Appliance issues
Routine care and education are also provided.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses 100 percent oxygen at increased atmospheric
pressure to help speed wound healing. HBO therapy is designed to increase
delivery of oxygen to injured body tissues. It helps promote greater blood
vessel formation, preservation of damaged tissue, and the reduction or
elimination of gas-bubble in obstructions.
HBO therapy is indicated for:
- Gas gangrene
- Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
- Crush injuries and severed limbs
- Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
- Progressive necrotizing infections
- Preparation and preservation of compromised skin grafts
- Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
- Osteoradionecrosis as an adjunct to conventional treatment
- Thermal skin burns
- Actinomycosis as an adjunct to conventional therapy
A physician referral is required. For more information, please call (606) 408-1260.
