Wound Care in Waterloo
Allen Hospital Wound and Hyperbaric Center, managed by Healogics, Inc., provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing.
That's where our wound and hyperbaric center can help. With leading edge treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. The center uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetes education and other areas to address total patient health.
Patients may self-refer or be referred by their primary care provider.
