The Columbia County Health System Wound Care Center offers patients access to the most current treatment methodologies including wound vacs, skin substitutes, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Our physician-driven, multi-disciplinary approach to outpatient wound care has a superior success rate in facilitating the healing process. Our providers and nurses are certified and specialty-trained in wound care. 

A patient with a wound that has not begun to heal in two weeks or is not completely healed in six weeks may benefit from the proven, best-practice methodologies. Some of the indications for wound therapy include: diabetic ulcers, neuropathic ulcers, pressure wounds, ischemic ulcers, venous insufficiency, traumatic wounds, surgical wounds, burns, vasculitis, peristomal skin irritations, and other chronic, non-healing wounds.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) helps the body's oxygen-dependent, wound healing mechanisms function more efficiently. There are several, approved indications for HBOT that are currently reimbursed by Medicare, HMO's and other insurance providers include.
