Treatments & Procedures
The physicians and specialists at Placentia-Linda Hospital are dedicated to providing you with the latest treatments and procedures for your chronic wound. Among them are:
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses high-pressure oxygen in order to promote the healing of wounds. Adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy is currently used for crush injuries, decompression sickness, foot ulcers and thermal burns.
Lower extremity edema control
Lower extremity edema is caused by fluid buildup in the legs, which may be the result of chronic disease, pregnancy, injury or the use of certain medications. Lower extremity edema control focuses on treating the cause of the fluid buildup.
