Wound Care

The T.J. Samson Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine is an outpatient treatment center for people with non-healing wounds, such as diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, traumatic wounds, and ulcers caused by circulation problems.

Our services

The specially trained doctors and nurses provide a comprehensive, individualized course of treatment, which may include any of the following:

  • Advanced wound dressings
  • Compression therapy
  • Debridement
  • Bilaminate skin grafting
  • Pressure-reducing equipment
  • Footwear
  • Nutritional counseling with disease education
  • Transcutaneous oxygen measurements and hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Inpatient consultations

Scheduling and after-hours care

We strongly encourage patients to schedule advance appointments. Some same-day appointments are available for established patients experiencing acute medical problems regarding wound care and dressings.

If you need care during weekends or holidays or after the office closes, please go to the emergency room at T.J. Samson Community Hospital for medical emergencies or T.J. Urgent Care for important but less serious problems.

For non-emergency medical assistance outside of regular office hours, please call 270.651.4325 to leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.
