Maryland General Hospital (MGH) has launched a new wound healing center to provide hospital-based outpatient care for patients with chronic and non-healing wounds.
The Center will include two mono-place hyperbaric oxygen chambers and an expanded vascular lab to provide a comprehensive, one-stop approach to wound treatment.
Maryland General Hospital president and CEO Sylvia Smith Johnson said the health issues of diabetes and vascular problems can cause serious non-healing wounds that can result in permanent damage, if left untreated.
"We recognized that there were limited options for comprehensive wound care with advanced treatment that includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Our new center fills that vital need," Johnson added.
The Healing Center offers treatment for various conditions including peripheral arterial disease, diabetic foot ulcers, venous stasis disease, bone infections, pressure sores/ulcers, burns, soft tissue radionecrosis, post-surgical wounds and trauma wounds.
