Wound Healing Center of Imperial Valley

A wound is a cut or break in the skin that can become life threatening if left untreated. After several weeks, most wounds, if left unhealed, risk the chance for permanent damage. If a wound has not healed for more than 30 days, it is time to seek medical treatment.

The Imperial Valley Wound Healing Center is staffed with a unique team of doctors, nurses and therapists all dedicated to healing chronic wounds. The causes of wounds are complex, but our group represents expertise in all of the major areas necessary to handle the various circumstances and challenges of wound healing with proven success in a caring supportive environment. Whatever it takes for healing to occur, we are equipped and staffed to make it happen.

In 2009, the Imperial Valley Wound Healing Center was recognized with a 2009 Front Runners Award from National Healing. National Healing is a national industry leader in managing clinical and financially successful managed wound centers. The front runner award is earned through distinction for excellence in wound care and hyperbaric oxygen treatment.


With our caring staff and specialized treatment plans developed just for you, we have what you need to get back on your feet. We are expert at caring for people whose wounds have resisted traditional treatment.


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a medical treatment in which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while inside a chamber of increased atmospheric pressure. This treatment is helpful in the transportation of concentrated oxygen to the body’s tissues, promoting healing. Continued use of this treatment can also assist in forming new blood vessels, reducing swelling and assist in fighting infection. Conditions that may require HBO include:

  • Acute peripheral Arterial insufficiency
  • Acute Traumatic peripheral ischemia (ATPI)
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Diabetic ulcers of the lower extremities
  • Gangrene
  • Complications from radiation therapy
  • Actinomycosis
  • Acute Carbon Monoxide Intoxication
  • Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs
  • Cyanide poisoning
  • Decompression illness
  • Gas embolism
  • Progressive Necrotizing Infections


Ask your doctor about visiting our Wound Healing Center if:

  • You have had a sore that won’t heal for more than 30 days (commonly experienced by people with diabetes).
  • You have a sore with increasing pain, redness or swelling, foul odor or a change in color
  • You have a surgical wound that has become infected.


Generally, the physician currently treating you will refer you to our center for specialized care. You can also make an appointment directly. When you call for your first appointment, we will ask you a few questions about your wound and your general health.

Before treatment, our team of doctors and nurses will thoroughly evaluate your wound and review your health and medical history. Tests may be conducted to tell us more about your blood flow and tissue oxygenation, as well as to determine if there is any infection present. Together with your physician, we will develop a treatment program based on your special needs. We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you will return to your doctor for follow-up care.

Most of our treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs and other private insurance plans.
