Specialized care for a variety of wounds

Wound Care at Winchester Hospital

Wounds can seriously impact your daily life. When they don't heal properly, they can leave you in pain and prevent you from doing the things you love.

The specialists at the Winchester Hospital Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center provide comprehensive wound management care. Established in 1998 as one of the first wound centers in greater Boston, our specialists care for a variety of wounds. These include wounds caused by poor blood flow, a lack of movement or other health conditions.

Our team offers state-of-the-art treatments, including debridement, biologic skin substitutions and advanced wound dressings.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Wound Care

At Winchester Hospital, you get access to a leading-edge approach to wound care known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). This treatment has proven effective in assisting in wound healing and fighting infections. It also helps build new blood vessels and healthy tissue in a wound. This therapy can be used to treat chronic wounds, wounds or symptoms resulting from radiation therapy and other types of wounds.

Planning for Your Wound Care Appointment

At our Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center, you are the most important member of the team. You are involved in each step of your treatment plan to ensure that your wound is healing successfully. Our staff is available to assist you whenever you have questions or concerns.

Most patients are referred by their primary care doctor or other specialist. However, you can call us directly at 781-396-8224 to make an appointment and start your healing journey.

At your first appointment, you undergo an evaluation to determine the type of wound you have and any problems that might be affecting healing. While receiving care at the Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Center, you continue to see your primary care doctor or other specialists. We keep them informed about your treatment at our center.
