n estimated 5,000,000 Americans suffer from
wounds that time and traditional treatment just
don’t heal, and if left unattended, these non-healing or
chronic wounds can continue to worsen, leading to dire
consequences, such as the loss of a limb.
A non-healing wound is generally defined as a wound that
has not improved after 30 days of traditional treatment
and is often a result of factors such as age, diet, smoking,
circulatory problems, diabetes, arthritis, kidney disease or
radiation injuries.
Good Shepherd’s Byron Cook, MD,
Center for Advanced Wound
Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine
has over two decades of
experience in lifesaving
wound care in East Texas
and continues to lead with
advanced equipment, an
expert team of multidisciplinary
wound care physicians and
specialists and a 97 percent patient
satisfaction rating.
Following a wound assessment and evaluation to
discover the underlying cause of a wound, the
Wound Care team will then collaborate with the
patient’s doctor to develop a comprehensive
treatment plan, individualized for optimum recovery.
Good Shepherd’s Wound Care program is deeply
experienced in hyperbaric medicine. The pressurized
chamber delivering 100 percent oxygen is proven to be
particularly efficacious in healing wounds and compromised
skin grafts. For the patient’s comfort, GSMC’s two spacious
hyperbaric chambers have built-in TVs and a highly trained
monitoring attendant. A hyperbaric-qualified physician is
also on call during treatments.
If you have a wound that has not improved in 30 days
with traditional treatments, you need more than a
Band-aid solution, you need the Good Shepherd
Byron Cook, MD, Center for Advanced Wound Healing
and Hyperbaric Medicine to help speed your recovery.
In 2011, the Center for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine
was renamed to honor Dr. Byron Cook, a longtime Good Shepherd
physician and Director of the Wound Care Unit (1998-2011), who
dedicated his life to serving his patients and those in need.
To schedule an appointment, call 903-315-3880.
