St. Luke’s Wound Management & Hyperbaric Medicine Center – Lehighton Reopens
The newly renovated St. Luke’s Wound Management & Hyperbaric Center – Lehighton will reopen today Monday, January 14.
The center is equipped with the area’s only hyperbaric medicine chambers, which provide advanced treatment for hard-to-heal wounds.
“St. Luke’s invested in the renovations to provide our wound management patients in the Lehighton area with a more comfortable experience and more attractive surroundings,” said Steven Bowers, DO, Network Director, Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine. “Our goal is to help patients heal faster and feel better sooner.”
St. Luke’s Wound Management Centers specialize in treating wounds caused by:
- Diabetes (especially foot wounds)
- Disorders of the veins and arteries of lower extremities
- Pressure-related injuries
- Complex surgery
The center offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a highly effective, painless treatment to heal wounds and radiation complications that are not responding to other treatments. During treatment sessions, patients lie in a clear acrylic chamber filled with pressurized oxygen. The pressure, combined with pure oxygen, increases the concentration of oxygen in the blood stream, in turn enhancing the body’s ability to heal itself.
