We’re helping patients heal. In 38 days or less.

Physician Referral Form

The Fort HealthCare Wound, Edema & Hyperbarics Center is able to offer specialized treatments for your patients that have non-healing wounds, chronic edema, or are in need of ostomy services (before and after surgery). We coordinate everything with your office and make sure you receive documentation about treatment and at discharge.

We help providers heal patients with a variety of ailments – and quickly! The impact of the delayed healing of wounds and related disorders does not benefit a provider, medical practice, or patient in the long term. We use the most up-to-date practices and equipment for wound healing treatment for:

  • Limb salvage to avoid amputation
  • Lymphedema
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Surgical wounds
  • Burns and traumatic wounds
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Vasculitis
  • Skin irritations and other non-healing wounds
  • And all other types of chronic wounds

Services we provide:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
  • Specialized dressings, fitting for compression wraps or garments, and daily wound care and dressing changes
  • Skin grafting
  • Wound vac treatment and off-loading of pressure on affected areas
  • Infectious disease management
  • Physical Therapy
  • Lymphedema treatment (LANA certified therapists on site) and manual lymph drainage
  • Ostomy services (before and after surgery)
  • Vascular and laboratory evaluation
  • Pain and nutritional management
  • Diabetic education
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiology
  • Removal of tissue / Debridement
  • T-COM

These procedures allow more rapid wound healing and diminish edema.

Referral Process

While patients are able to self-refer, it is our practice to make certain they have a primary care provider’s care involved in treatment, as well as coordinated care with other specialists overseeing their care plan.

Patients with diabetes may notice chronic, non-healing wounds on their neck, jaw, feet, or other areas. Cancer patients may experience swelling and fluid build-up in the feet, legs and ankles. We also help patients that have undergone surgery recently and are slow to heal or have a burn that is taking too long to repair itself. Whatever the situation, there is help.
