About Us
Our care team at Ascension Providence Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center provides advanced wound healing with hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

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

In Mobile, Alabama, highly trained doctors and nurses at the wound care center offer comprehensive patient wound care using the latest modern medical technology, including three hyperbaric oxygen chambers, to treat complex, slow-healing wounds, including diabetic foot or leg ulcers, lower leg ulcers due to poor circulation, chronic soft tissue infections, chronic bone infections, radiation tissue damage and preservation of skin grafts and flaps. We offer advanced wound-care treatments to promote healing, including:

  • Specialized antibiotic dressings
  • Negative pressure wound therapy
  • Physician-monitored hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Diabetes leg and foot ulcer care
  • Hydrotherapy
  • Nutrition counseling/education/prevention
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Tissue oxygenation studies

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 (251) 266-3530.

Hyperbaric chamber used to treat many conditions   

Our wound care doctors use hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat many adult health conditions, including:

  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)
  • Burns, including radiation injury
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crush injury to skin or bone
  • Decompression sickness

Work with our wound care team to manage your recovery

Our doctors and nurses listen to understand you and your health concerns. As part of its comprehensive approach to healing, the Center treats the whole patient, not just the wound, and collaborates closely with referring physicians. We emphasize patient education and nutritional counseling, as part of a treatment plan designed to prevent recurrence. 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.
