Types of Treatment

At Ohio Valley Hospital’s The Wound Care Center®, our treatment plans are customized to each patient’s needs. Some of the treatments and procedures we work with are listed below.

Skin Grafts

A skin graft takes a piece of healthy skin and surgically transplants it onto a new site on the body.

Wound-Related Outpatient Surgical Procedures

An example of a wound-related outpatient surgical procedure is wound debridement; the removal of dead skin or foreign material from an open wound.

Total Contact Casting

A gold standard wound dressing that is specially designed to take the weight off of the foot in patients with diabetic foot ulcers.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT)

A vacuum dressing to promote healing in acute or chronic wounds.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

The latest advances in wound care include Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). While a patient rests quietly in a lightly-pressurized chamber, the body’s natural healing process is kicked into overdrive by the influx of pure oxygen.

Hyperbaric oxygen, highly favored by recovering professional athletes, helps a variety of conditions, including:DSC_0301
