The Rochester General Wound Healing Center, an alliance with St. Ann’s Community, provides outpatient care for wounds resulting from conditions including:
Any wound that has not started to heal in two weeks, or is not completely healed in four weeks, may benefit from our services.
Our team, led by Associate Medical Director Kim Petrone, MD, develops a personalized plan that matches each patient with techniques including:
HBOT can enhance healing on its own, with or without other types of treatment. The patient rests comfortably in a hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized with 100% oxygen. As the atmospheric pressure is gradually increased, the tissues around the wound receive more oxygen, to speed up the body's natural healing process.
This technique can be helpful with chronic wounds and other specific conditions requiring aggressive treatment. Our hyperbaric chambers are the largest in the area, for added patient comfort.
