Personalized, Comprehensive Wound Care

Columbus Regional Health's Wound Center is an advanced facility that offers the latest in wound care technology and care.  This outpatient facility allows physicians and nursing staff to work on individualized care plans for patients with chronic wounds.

Wound Care Services

In this video, Randy Lucas shares his experience with diabetic wound treatment at the Wound Center, and Dr. John Hladik explains the benefits of total contact casting.

The Wound Center includes physicians and nurses trained as specialists in wound healing treatment and Hyperbaric Oxygen Medicine. The addition of nursing staff allows for individualized case management at each visit and access to the physician on a regular basis, which allows for more extensive wound treatment to accelerate the healing process. Wound care services include, but are not limited to debridement, bioengineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, VAC therapy, and total contact casting.

We work with referring physicians to determine a complete set of wound care procedures to address each patient's individualized needs. Our staff is trained to aggressively manage wounds to ensure they heal quickly and completely.

We provide all patients with dedicated and specialized attention, enabling them to return to a full life, free from the pain of chronic wounds.

Wound care is helpful for:

  • Diabetic wounds
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Venous stasis ulcers (cause by poor blood circulation, usually of the legs)
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Vasculitic ulcers
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Complex soft tissue wounds
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Infected wounds

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which is administered on a daily basis, allows a patient to breathe 100 percent oxygen (2-3 times greater than atmospheric pressure), resulting in an increase of 10-15 times in plasma oxygen concentration. This increased oxygen in the tissue creates the optimal environment for the body's natural wound healing processes to repair damaged tissue.

Limb Preservation Program

The Limb Preservation Program is one of only a few such programs in Indiana, and specializes in treatment of patients with vascular disease or diabetes who are at risk for leg and foot amputation. The comprehensive care team on the Limb Preservation Program understands that amputation is a frightening option for patients. Team members work together with the patient to utilize a multidisciplinary total care approach in an effort to prevent amputation and help the patient manage their chronic condition.

The Columbus Regional Health team consists of specialists dedicated to healing wounds and preventing amputations. Vascular surgeons and podiatrists manage care and coordinate referrals to specialists in cardiology, endocrinology, infectious disease, general and plastic surgery, orthopedics and rehabilitation among many others. A nurse navigator guides and supports patients in the program, connecting them to resources and services needed for their individual care plan, including education on nutrition and diabetes management skills they can use at home. Additionally, our nurse navigator is available by phone and at clinic appointments to provide education and answer questions.

Our team is dedicated to timely and efficient access for potential patients to the program by offering appointments within 24 to 72 hours of referral. The patient's primary care provider is kept informed of treatment and progress to ensure seamless coordination of care.

Call the Columbus Regional Health Wound Center at 812-376-5373 for an evaluation. Referrals from a primary care provider are welcome, but not required for an appointment.
