Memorial Hermann Northeast provides comprehensive outpatient chronic wound management through our state-of-the-art hyperbaric and advanced center.
The center is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of affiliated physicians, nurses and technicians with advanced training in wound care and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
The care team is under the medical direction of Donald Sprague, M.D. who is board certified in Wound Care and Hyperbarics. Under his direction, the Wound Care Team evaluates conditions and formulates individualized patient treatment plans using the most effective technologies available to provide maximum healing and relief.
The center offers a comprehensive evaluation to develop an individualized, aggressive treatment program for non-healing wounds. We provide interdisciplinary, comprehensive wound management, integrating advanced wound care techniques, products and services. Patient education, including at-home wound care, nutrition, exercises and other measures to aid healing and prevention, is an integral part of all treatment plans.
The center utilizes an aggressive approach to heal wounds faster and focuses on prevention for the future. One of these therapies is the use of advanced bio-engineered living tissue.
One patient who recently came to the center had sustained a large wound on the right heel in a motorcycle accident. The patient’s treatment consisted of surgery, hyperbaric oxygen and applications of a bio-engineered living tissue called Primatrix™, which helped the wound heal faster than without the treatment.
