Wound care

Wound care involves medical interventions to heal a wound after injury. Specialized treatment is provided for wounds that are nonhealing or refuse to heal on their own. A vital aspect of treatment includes learning how to properly dress and care for a wound.

Burn care

Our in-house Burn and Reconstructive Center of Colorado is verified by the American Burn Association, demonstrating our commitment to high-quality care. Our program treats all ages, with our burn specialists treating a variety of burns with both reconstructive surgery and nonsurgical therapies. Some of our burn care treatments and services include degloving, bodily reconstruction, lymphedema surgery, scar revision, targeted muscle reinnervation and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Hyperbaric chamber.

HBOT is an innovative, progressive treatment that takes place inside a hyperbaric chamber. During the procedure, you breathe pure oxygen while the pressurization allows you to take in more oxygen than you could without. The increase in oxygen moves throughout your body, including the wound site, increasing the rate of healing.

Conditions that can be treated with HBOT include:

  • Burns
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Gas gangrene
  • Compartment syndrome
  • Crush injuries
  • Necrotizing fasciitis
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Radiation injuries
  • Skin grafts
  • Thermal burns

Limb preservation

Chronic, nonhealing wounds can often happen as a result of diabetes, which causes poor circulation. Our limb preservation services aim to reduce amputations with limb-saving treatments provided in our clinic.

Diabetic wound management

Diabetes can cause serious medical issues, including wound development, called diabetic foot ulcers. Without intensive treatment, these wounds can lead to amputation. Our physicians strive to make use of every treatment available to avoid limb loss. We also offer a diabetes education program and individualized treatment plans that include managing diabetes with proper nutrition, physical exercise and emotional support.

Our team includes physicians from multiple specialties with advanced training in wound care management, as well as experienced nurses trained in the care of chronic wounds.
