Inova is Northern Virginia's Wound Healing Expert
For most people the body naturally heals when it has a wound. But for those who have difficulty healing, specialized treatment may be required. Non-healing wounds can occur for many reasons, including diabetes or other chronic disease, poor circulation, nutritional status or age and body size.
Inova offers comprehensive wound healing centers for the treatment of complex sores and wounds that will not heal. The Dorothea R. Fisher Wound Healing Center is the first specialized resource for wound healing in the Washington, DC, area.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBO)
State-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is a Medicare-reimbursed treatment option available at Inova Mount Vernon Hospital and Inova Fair Oaks Hospital for conditions that require increased oxygen flow to body tissue, including non-healing wounds for patients with diabetes, chronic radiation injury, compromised grafts and flaps, and 12 other specific conditions.
Our HBO specialists collaborate to provide the most advanced HBO treatment options available. We are excited to offer expanded HBO services at two locations, Inova Mount Vernon Hospital and Inova Fair Oaks Hospital.
