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.

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.
