Types of Wounds

At South Shore Hospital’s Center for Wound Healing, our team of wound care experts has advanced training in addressing all types of wounds that have lingered for months, or even years. We provide leading-edge wound diagnostic and treatment methods that address the underlying cause of the condition and promote permanent healing.

Care for Even the Most Complex Wounds

Our specialties include:

  • Burns
  • Diabetic wounds
  • Failing skin grafts
  • Pressure sores
  • Slow-to-heal wounds
  • Severe infections, including post-operative infections
  • Skin irritations
  • Snake, spider or insect bites
  • Surgical wounds
  • Trauma wounds
  • Wounds due to poor circulation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment: Innovative Therapy to Speed Healing

Our Center for Wound Healing offers hyperbaric oxygen treatment, a sophisticated technology that accelerates the delivery of oxygen to the body’s tissues to promote healing. Patients breathe 100 percent oxygen while enclosed in a clear, specialized chamber at greater-than-normal atmospheric pressure. This therapy can significantly improve outcomes for chronic and diabetic wounds, soft-tissue infections, radiation tissue damage and more.
