Wound Care

We Heal Wounds, But We Also Heal People

Our Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine Center of Excellence is dedicated to healing each person we see. Our specially trained team loves to see the transformation patients undergo when their series of treatments results in visible results. Patients then begin to rebuild the confidence and positive attitude that becomes an inspiration to others. Our center is staffed with a team of highly trained physicians, nurses, and foot specialists to help patients get their lives back after suffering a non-healing wound. These are wounds that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment, and our center has seen many of these patients are entirely healed in an average of just 50 days.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center has a longstanding commitment to providing our patients with access to the finest medical professionals, using the latest tools, technology, and techniques, to deliver the highest quality of care with compassion and understanding. To that end, the Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine is a shining example of all of these things at work for your benefit.

Treatment Modalities for Treat Non-Healing Sounds

The three main types of wounds treated at Trinitas are pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, and trauma wounds. Our multidisciplinary team used researched, proven techniques for healing and relief in patients who previously thought their wounds were irreparable or would ultimately result in amputation.

Aplifgraf Living Skin Device

Our center was the first in New Jersey to use such innovative technologies as the Apligraf living skin device. The expertise of the Center's physicians in pioneering wound closure technologies such as the Vacuum Assisted Closure (VAC) was shared recently at a number of national wound healing conferences. The center ranks as one of the top centers in the nation, with overall heal rates 90% or higher.

Apligraf is bi-layered, cultured skin that has brought relief to thousands of patients suffering from venous leg ulcers and other types of hard-to-heal wounds. In a recent study, nine patients with limb-threatening ulcers were treated with Apligraf. All had been referred to Trinitas after other medical practitioners had recommended amputation. Each patient healed completely in an average of 76 days.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves placing the patient in a specially designed chamber that administers a 100% oxygen-rich environment under slight pressure. Oxygen reaches the wound through the bloodstream, resulting in improved healing, greater blood vessel formation, and reduced likelihood of infection. This treatment provides a non-invasive procedure for patients with complex wounds, crush injuries, acute burns, or diabetes-related ulcers.

Vacuum-Controlled Assisted Closure (VAC)

Vacuum-controlled assisted closure (VAC) therapy is a system that uses controlled negative pressure (vacuum) to help promote wound healing. Clinical studies demonstrate that the VAC therapy system also removes infectious materials and other fluids from the wound. The system employs a computer-controlled therapy unit to maintain constant negative pressure on the wound site.

How To Access Our Center
If you have a sore or wound that won’t heal in a the time span of a month or long, you should ask your doctor about the Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center.

A physician referral is not necessary. Individuals may call the center directly to make an appointment for evaluation. The evaluation usually includes a physical examination, lab work and other special tests to determine the flow of blood and oxygen to the wound.

The Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center is located in Suite 104 of the Trinitas Regional Medical Center Medical Office Building, 240 Williamson Street. The Medical Office Building is part of the main Trinitas Regional Medical Center campus.


Welcome to our Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center. As one of the nation's leading centers for wound healing, we see a complex array of hard-to-heal wounds in patients from all races, nationalities, and economic backgrounds. Hard-to-heal wounds come in all shapes and sizes and can affect many parts of the body.

Our approach to wound healing is holistic in that we look at the entire person, not just the wound. How is the wound affecting the patient's life? What other lifestyle factors might hinder successful wound healing? What genetic factors contribute to the patient's overall wellbeing?

We use an array of advanced techniques to heal the more difficult wounds including VAC therapy, apligraphs, total contact casts, and hyperbaric oxygen. Our wound certified nurses are experts in wound care and applying advanced treatments.

With a success rate that is consistently above 90% (closer to 95% most of the time), we find that as we heal a patient's wound, another metamorphosis happens as the person begins to regain hope, sees a positive outcome is on the horizon and realizes that they will repair a tear in their body's largest organ (the skin).

We see a lot of patients who have diabetes, but we also see patients who have had complications from various types of surgeries that have created difficult situations that, to some, seem overwhelming.

We welcome the challenges each patient brings with their specific wound healing problems, and we enjoy the wonderful feeling that comes from helping a person get a sense of closure...literally.
