The Dorothea R. Fisher Wound Healing Center is the Washington, DC, area's first specialized resource for treatment of complex sores and wounds that will not heal, including foot ulcers associated with diabetes, non-healing surgical wounds, venous ulcers, pressure ulcers, and wounds related to metabolic diseases such as pyoderma gangrenosum and Crohn's disease.
Our wound healing team is comprised of physicians and certified clinical staff committed to healing complicated wounds using state-of-the-art treatment options and advanced technologies, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO).
The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy program at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital is the only program in Northern Virginia accredited by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS), and one of just 600 in the United States to carry this quality accreditation.
UHMS Accreditation means that our facility has met the highest standards of care and patient safety through a rigorous evaluation of our equipment, staff and training to ensure that the utmost quality is maintained within the specialty of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
Our hyperbaric chambers were recently upgraded to offer patients the most advanced in HBO therapy. Call to make an appointment and visit our new space.
