Every year, non-healing wounds keep three to five million Americans from living life to the fullest. The GHS Vascular Health Alliance Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Center offers a comprehensive wound healing program for those who have been suffering from a non-healing open wound. Providing one of the only wound healing programs of its kind in our area, the center draws patients from Greenville, Asheville, Columbia, and throughout the region. Our specialists understand how much our patients have to gain from a complete and successful recovery, and our wound care team is dedicated to providing the latest in wound care technology to meet this goal.
“Our comprehensive wound care program and hyperbaric treatment do more than just help patients recover. It opens doors to a more productive life for those who have been on the sidelines due to a major wound or infection caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other disorders and aids patients in their recovery”.
Thomas L. Oliver, M.D, CWSP.
Medical Director of the GHS Vascular Health Alliance Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Oxygen Center (HBO)
From basic wound care and debridement to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the Wound Healing & HBO Center provides patients with the resources they need to fully recover. We offer innovative healing measures including negative pressure wound therapy, skin substitutes and non-surgical debridement technology.
If patients require hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) wound care treatments, our Greenville office offers private facilities that maximize comfort. Our individual hyperbaric chambers administer 100% pure oxygen in a pressurized environment, increasing the level of oxygen entering the blood and tissue. Patients have the option of watching DVDs to pass the time during their treatment thanks to flat-screen televisions mounted above the chambers.
One of the most important components of a successful recovery is steady progress that’s monitored by a full spectrum of doctors, nurses and referring physicians. Our wound care staff, led by Thomas L. Oliver, M.D., board-certified in Internal Medicine, Vascular Medicine and Wound Care Management works in conjunction with patients’ personal physicians to involve them in the process from start to finish. Patients can receive a continuum of care — from the hospital and outpatient services to home health care. At any point in the process, patients can be sure their treatments are consistent with their long-term recovery plan.
