Patients with wounds that have failed to respond to standard treatment often need specialized care to prevent further tissue damage and to promote wound healing. Using the most sophisticated treatment available, LMA’s expert surgical staff provides advanced wound care to help our patients avoid systemic spread of infection.
The Lourdes Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden and The Wound Healing Center at Lourdes Medical Center Burlington County are the area’s service of choice for patients suffering from difficult-to-heal wounds. The physicians and nurses at these outpatient clinics have advanced education in wound management and deliver comprehensive, individualized treatment to thousands of patients every year.
Over the course of a few months, the vast majority of our patients with difficult-to-heal wounds are successfully treated and returned to their normal levels of mobility and function. Our team also works to address underlying diseases and conditions that contribute to the wound process, such as atrophied or deficient circulation, blood vessels, or nerves.
Hyperbaric medicine is often a critical resource for patients with difficult-to-heal wounds. This treatment uses oxygen at levels higher than atmospheric pressure to help the blood produce substances that fight bacteria and promote healing. Select wound patients and patients with other types of conditions can benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy in our dedicated wound-care units at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden and Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County in Willingboro.
LMA wound specialists establish partnerships with our patients’ doctors and referring institutions. Serving as an outpatient clinic, the Wound Healing Centers at LMA care for independent and ambulatory patients, as well as those transported for treatment from rehabilitation sites or long-term skilled care facilities. Our staff also works with patients in the hospital.
