Wound Care

Our care team at Ascension NE Wisconsin - St. Elizabeth Campus provides advanced wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Wound care specialists provide options for hard-to-treat wounds

In Appleton, Wisconsin, doctors and nurses at the wound care center specialize in treating complex, slow-healing wounds, including diabetic foot ulcers and leg ulcers. We offer advanced wound-care treatments to promote healing, including:

  • Debridement (removing contaminated tissue) using various methods
  • Compression therapy
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Infection management and prevention
  • Topical wound and skin care
  • Patient and family education

Wound care after surgery is critical for your health. And doing regular self-checks, especially in hard-to-see places, may help prevent infection and serious complications. Our care team is here to help. 

Advanced wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The hyperbaric chamber is a painless environment that delivers oxygen-rich therapy to promote wound healing. During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, concentrated oxygen quickly increases in your bloodstream and helps heal the wound from the inside out. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment for other conditions in addition to diabetic foot ulcers and slow-healing wounds. 

When hyperbaric oxygen therapy is recommended, our care team takes the time to answer your questions. Call 920-738-2751.
