Wound Care

Specializing in Healing Chronic Wounds
Our team of expert physicians and nurses specialize in the treatment of wounds that have resisted healing after months or even years of traditional treatment. In fact, many patients are completely healed in just a short time after visiting a wound center.

Inspira’s Wound Care centers are staffed by woundcertified physicians with years of experience treating all types of chronic wounds. Our comprehensive wound care team includes physicians specializing in wounds as well as podiatry, nurses, therapists, diabetic educators, and clinical dieticians.

A Healing Program for the Whole Patient
When you first visit Inspira Wound Care, one of our physicians will evaluate your wound, your general health and your medical history. Using lab work and diagnostic imaging, our staff will identify the cause of your wound, such as pressure, poor circulation or diabetes.

After your initial assessment, our multidisciplinary team will create a treatment plan based on your specific needs. By developing individual care plans forevery patient, our physicians not only treat wounds, but also identify the causes and provide preventive treatment of them.

Removal of unhealthy tissue, advanced wound dressings, nutrition counseling, education and prevention, and physical therapy are just some of the treatments used to promote healing. Inspira’s Wound Care staff is also experienced in providing surgical wound debridement in the center. And, if surgical interventions are needed, they can be performed at any one of Inspira’s three medical centers.

How will Inspira work with your doctor?
Inspira Wound Care collaborates with your primary care physician, just like any other medical specialist. Our team will discuss your treatment program with your doctor and provide regular updates on your progress.

Insurance Coverage
Most health plans cover wound treatment. The amount of your coverage will depend on your specific plan. And, many insurance plans allow patients to make an appointment without a physician’s referral.

State-of-the-Art Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to Heal Wounds

Oxygen sustains us with each breath we take. But did you know it can help your body heal and repair itself ? When placed in a pressurized environment of 100% pure oxygen, your body’s natural healing mechanisms are given a boost, allowing for more rapid healing to occur.

We now offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy at the Inspira Medical Center Elmer to treat patients suffering from a range of wounds due to diabetes, radiation therapy injury, vascular disease complications and more. With two new state-of-the-art hyperbaric chambers, our trained wound care specialists have another evidence-based therapy to manage and heal chronic wounds. Hyperbaric therapy can also be used to treat carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness (the “bends”).

At Inspira, we are committed to bringing new services to our community to meet the growing and changing needs of residents in our region.

How can Inspira Wound Care help you?
Each year millions of Americans suffer from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other conditions which can slow the body’s healing process.
