Mercy Wound Care in Festus, MO offers specialized treatment of nonhealing wounds. We treat wounds caused by diabetes, burns, spider bites, surgery, and other events.
Our services include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which immerses wounds in pure oxygen to promote healing and fight infection.
During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, the patient breathes 100% oxygen for a short time while resting in a special pressurized chamber. This allows greater amounts of oxygen to be dissolved into the bloodstream and carried to body tissues in amounts large enough to improve healing. For some conditions, we use specialized wraps and dressings that safeguard wounds from infection while allowing them to heal as quickly as possible.
Our staff works with your physician to develop a treatment plan that's right for you and your unique medical condition.
