RWJUH Center for Wound Healing

About the Center for Wound Healing

Chronic non-healing wounds and complex wounds are medical conditions affecting millions of Americans. These complex wounds either fail to heal or don't respond normally to standard wound care for any number of reasons. When a non-healing wound occurs, medical attention is necessary for the treatment and healing of the wound. The Center for Wound Healing at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick was specifically created to treat patients with non-healing or complex wounds. Our multidisciplinary team combines the collective expertise of professionals from different medical specialties with state-of-the-art techniques to heal wounds that have not responded to previous treatment.

Our wound care facility utilizes the most advanced technologies and treatments for the maintenance and upkeep of patients with chronic, non-healing wounds. Our center provides:

  • State-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Individualized treatment plans
  • Case management for complex patients

Medicare-Approved Indications for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

At the New Brunswick Center for Wound Healing, we provide our patients with access to state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This therapy is simple in nature, utilizing a painless and non-invasive technique to heal patients’ wounds. Patients who undergo HBOT are asked to relax and breathe in a chamber full of 100 percent oxygen. This increase in breathable oxygen guarantees that a patient will have oxygen-rich blood, an essential component to wound recovery in a person’s body.

Hyperbaric oxygen may be used as an important adjunctive therapy for a number of approved symptoms including:

  • Diabetic wounds of lower extremities, non-healing Wagner grade III wound or higher
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Soft tissue radionecrosis
  • Comprised skin grafts and flaps
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Progressive necrotizing infections
  • Gas embolism
