Don’t let chronic wounds get in the way of life. The staff at the Advanced Wound Care Center at Cookeville Regional offers:

  • Wound consultation/evaluation (diagnostic and ongoing assessments) and treatment
  • Non-invasive vascular studies
  • Specialty wound dressings
  • Cellular and tissue-based products
  • Compression therapy
  • Treatment of wound infections

  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat some medical conditions and is also used in treatment of certain kinds of advanced wounds. The treatment takes place in a chamber that you can see out of.

You lie on a stretcher inside the chamber where you can watch TV, read a book or watch a movie.

The chamber is pressurized, with patients breathing 100-percent oxygen. Your blood carries the extra oxygen and takes it to your injured area to promote better and quicker healing.
