Wound Care Treatments & Conditions

St. David's HealthCare is the largest and most experienced provider of Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Central Texas, providing exceptional care to patients since 1987.

Wound Care Services

St. David's HealthCare offers specialized care for problem wounds that are not healing properly. Wound healing is a complex process that, when disrupted, often requires specialized intervention. Our Wound Care programs take an intensive, multi-disciplinary approach to focus on healing wounds as rapidly as possible and also treating the underlying causes that compromise the healing process.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

As part of a comprehensive wound treatment approach, HBOT is a safe, effective method of providing the necessary oxygen for healing in patients with chronic wounds. HBOT promotes vascular formation, facilitates the action of the body's healing cells, and has also been shown to inhibit the growth of infectious bacteria. HBOT is also used to treat the effects of radiation, poorly healing skin flaps and grafts, infected bone, decompression sickness and variety of other illnesses.
