Wound Care Clinic

When a wound does not heal or improve with standard treatment in 30 days, it is considered as a chronic wound or a non-healing wound.

Burjeel Medical City wound care clinic offers comprehensive wound care services for patients with hard to heal wounds. We offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, nutrition counseling, and comprehensive wound care treatment and education.

Services offered:

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Some patients with chronic wounds can benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), when patient breathes in 100% oxygen inside a pressurized chamber. This treatment rapidly transports high concentrations of oxygen directly to the bloodstream and allows oxygen to penetrate deep into tissues to assist in fighting infection, promotes formation of new blood vessels and promote healing.

Comprehensive wound care management

  • We perform Florescence imaging, which improves detection of bacterial burden in chronic wounds, this results in detection wounds with high bacterial loads that would have otherwise been missed by standard assessment of clinical signs and symptoms.
  • Ultrasound debridement when required to remove necrotic tissues, stimulates circulation in the treatment area, reduction of bacteria and biolfilm, preserves healthy tissue and protects granulation tissue while preparing the wound bed for subsequent therapies and treatments.
  • Screening for peripheral artery disease; a noninvasive way to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD). The disease occurs when narrowed arteries reduce the blood flow to the legs.
  • Use of Negative pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT).
  • Treatment of wounds related to complications of poor circulation, like gangrene or necrosis, Peripheral artery disease, Venous stasis ulcers.
  • Treatment for neuropathic ulceration (diabetic foot ulcers), pressure ulcers, surgical wounds, tissue damaged from radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
  • Referrals to multidisciplinary team which may include; endocrinologist, vascular surgeon, surgical department, dietitian, occupational therapists when required.
