Relief from Chronic Wounds

Every year, chronic wounds caused by diabetes, insect bites, pressure ulcers, trauma or other conditions keep three to five million people from living life the way they'd like. The Wound Healing Institute of Carolina at Aiken Regional Medical Centers can help.

Our wound care team treats sores and wounds, including those that have resisted healing for months or even years. If you have a sore or wound that has not begun to heal in a month, or healed entirely in two months, you should ask your doctor for a referral to the Wound Healing Institute of Carolina. If your health insurance allows, we also accept self-referrals.

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a procedure in which a patient breaths 100 percent oxygen while relaxing in a pressurized chamber. This delivers high concentrations of oxygen to the bloodstream and the wound bed, which rapidly accelerates the healing process.

    Our team puts together a treatment program based on each patient’s special needs. The program includes visits to the institute plus detailed instructions for home care. Our staff is available whenever patients or family members have questions.
