Spartanburg Medical Center Wound Center provides a multidisciplinary program for the treatment of acute and chronic wounds. Every patient receives individualized care to ensure a meaningful recovery.
We treat multiple types of wounds from chronic leg ulcers (venous stasis ulcers), diabetic ulcers and pressure ulcers, to non-healing surgical wounds. Whether your care is outpatient, inpatient, long-term acute care or home health services, our experts work as a team to provide you with outstanding, seamless care.
Foot and leg wounds often need compression from elastic stockings or bandages to improve blood return, prevent blood pooling and help control swelling.
To heal wounds on the bottom of the foot, our team of highly skilled casting technicians can help take pressure off wounds using comfortable, easy-to-wear casts and boots custom-designed for each patient.
Our physical therapists offer specialized wound treatments as part of your comprehensive treatment plan. These may include whirlpool therapy, painless electric stimulation to help heal wounds, and ultrasonic mist therapy to debride, clean and stimulate wound healing. Mobility seating assessment services are available for those who needs specialty wheelchair assessment or bed evaluation to improve pressure management.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) is the medical use of concentrated oxygen to help in certain conditions. By breathing hyperbaric oxygen in a pressurized chamber, the patient receives high levels of oxygen to tissues in the body which, due to injury or disease, lack the required oxygen. Very high levels of oxygen can help new blood vessels form, help wounds heal, fight infections and reduce swelling. Spartanburg Medical Center has the only hyperbaric oxygen in the Upstate accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.
