    Sleep Disorders Center

    in Our Services

    Last updated 3 years ago

    If you have trouble falling asleep, staying awake or sleeping through the night, you may be among the one-third of Americans estimated to have sleep disorders. If not treated, a sleep disorder can lead to chronic fatigue, disorientation and the inability to accomplish everyday tasks.

    Test Yourself:

    • Do you  style="font-size: 11px;">snore loudly and persistently at night, and are you sleep during the day?
    • Have you ever "dozed off" while driving?
    • Do you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep?
    • Does your partner notice that you sometimes stop breathing while you're sleeping?
    • Do you wake up with an acid taste in the mouth, or cough and wheeze during the night?

    If you answered "Yes" to any of the above questions, you may have a sleeping disorder. Discuss your symptoms with a physician or call (888) 642-3179 to schedule an appointment at the Sleep Disorders Center.

     

    Wound Care

    in Our Services

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Our comprehensive outpatient Center for Wound Care offers extensive expertise and state-of-the-art technology for managing hard-to-heal wounds. In our Center for Wound Care, we treat wounds due to burns, insect bites and other causes in addition to chronic, non-healing wounds occurring in patients with diabetes. Our team includes physicians, nurses and technicians with training in wound management.

    We can diagnose and design wound care programs for people with the following conditions:

    • Diabetic foot wounds
    • Traumatic wounds
    • Venous stasis & varicose vein wounds
    • Post surgical wounds
    • Failing surgical flaps
    • Autoimmune wounds
    • Arterial wounds
    • Osteomyelitis
    • Osteoradionecrosis
    • Soft tissue necrosis
    • Late effects of radiation
    • Burns
    • Any wound that is delayed in healing

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is recognized as an important addition to a proper wound care regimen in patients with advanced diabetic lower extremity ulcers and other conditions. And for tissues adversely affected by radiation therapy, HBOT has proven effective in encouraging the new capillary growth needed to increase the delivery of oxygen that fosters healing of damaged tissues.

    In HBOT, 100-percent oxygen is administered at a controlled pressure (greater than sea level) for a prescribed amount of time -- usually 90 minutes. This enables oxygen to reach bone and tissue that is normally inaccessible to red blood cells.

    Local wound care, debridement, bio-engineered dressings, off-loading, surgical revascularization, antibacterial treatment, proper footwear, good diabetic control and adequate cardiovascular and renal health all contribute to wound healing success. HBOT’s unique physiology adds a valuable tool to this complex treatment regimen.
