Wound Care

St. Joseph's Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine is an innovative, physician-based program that specializes in the treatment of chronic and non-healing wounds. Wound care services are available at clinics in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls.

Non-healing wounds are a growing problem spurred by the aging of Americans and the rising rates of diabetes and other chronic diseases. St. Joseph's Hospital's Center in Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine offers advanced treatment options such as:

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy allows you to breathe 100% oxygen under pressurized conditions (in a chamber). This increases the oxygen within your bloodstream and wounded tissue. This aids in healing at a much more rapid rate and is highly effective for complex wounds. Typical therapy is a series of 30 treatments of 120 minutes at one time, preferably five days a week.

Bio-engineered tissue grafting uses high-tech materials that
are very responsive to aiding the healing process.

Negative pressure therapies are also available to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds, fight infection, and enhance healing of burns. Special dressings and a negative-pressure vacuum is used to enhance circulation and remove excess fluid.

Our Chippewa Falls and Eau Claire Wound Care physicians and nurse care managers work in collaboration to monitor and manage your healing. Some areas addressed by wound care management include:

  • diabetic education
  • pain management
  • nutrition management
  • family and caregiver education
  • personal and home safety
  • physical and occupational therapy
  • personal hygiene
  • infection control

 

The clinical practice guidelines of St. Joseph's Hospital's Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine are supported by documented clinical evidence of successful healing outcomes.
