New Cayuga Center for Wound Healing at CMC offers leading edge treatments using state-of-the-art technology -- expansion includes another hyperbaric chamber

 

Ithaca, NY – The expansion of the Cayuga Center for Wound Healing now located in their new unit near the main entrance at Cayuga Medical Center, brings the community state-of-the-art treatment and protocols to treat chronic wounds including two hyperbaric chambers for oxygen therapy, negative pressure therapies, bioengineered tissues and biosynthetics. Patients may also have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and multi-center studies.

The facility features two state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen chambers, outfitted with flat screen TVs and premium sound systems for patient enjoyment during treatments. Whether they prefer to watch television, a DVD, or listen to a CD, patients can relax while 100 percent oxygen speeds the healing of their wounds. "The Cayuga Center for Wound Healing is an important part of our health care community, continuously offering the latest in wound care techniques, close to home." said John Rudd, President and CEO of Cayuga Medical Center. The healthcare professionals at the Cayuga Center for Wound Healing attend research symposiums featuring noted experts and receive specialized training from Healogics. Candidates for treatment at the new center are those suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections, radiation injuries to soft tissue and bone, compromised skin grafts and flaps, and wounds that haven't healed within 30 days.

More than 8 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic wounds of which healing has been impeded by such diseases and conditions as diabetes, obesity, aging and the late effects of radiation therapy.
