Non-Healing or Chronic Wounds
Wound Care at North Shore Wound and Vein
Patients who suffer from a non-healing wound or chronic wound, diabetic ulcers can expect our team to deliver an individualized treatment plan to facilitate healing.

All of our services are provided in a professional setting by experienced physicians and certified hyperbaric technicians.
A wound requires oxygen to stimulate and support wound healing.
The use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy can promote and accelerate wound healing by delivering oxygen under increased pressure to correct hypoxia (lack of oxygen at the wound site), enhance bacterial killing capacity, improve blood flow to the damaged tissue, and stimulate tissue repair.
Our treatment program encourages these essential components for successful wound healing:
- Improvement of Vascular Status
- Debridement When Indicated
- Appropriate Dressing
- Resolution of Infection
