Some wounds require special care to heal. For our patients with those needs, The Riverside Wound Center offers complete Wound Care Program with many specialized treatments to promote and speed healing. Click here to download the Riverside Wound Care Continuum patient information card.

One of the most progressive treatments we offer is hyperbaric oxygen therapy - a very effective way to help the body repair wounds and fight infection. Our Wound Center is home to two state-of-the-art hyperbaric therapy chambers and our wound care team is trained in the delivery of this care to qualified patients. During this therapy, our team prepares the patient and assists them into the chamber. While in the chamber, the patient breathes pure oxygen for a short time while cradled comfortably in a special chamber pressurized to greater than sea level. This allows extra oxygen to reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduce swelling and allow new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment. Patients are able to rest, watch TV or sleep while they receive this care.
