Wound Healing Center
The St. Vincent Wound Healing Center brings the Billings community state-of-the-art treatment and protocols to treat chronic wounds including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure therapies, bioengineered tissues and biosynthetics. Patients may also have the opportunity to participate in multi-center studies.
A member of the Healogics network, the St. Vincent Wound Healing Center employs a rigorous scientific approach to explore, test, find and develop the clinically proven methods and technologies which reintroduce the body's innate ability to heal. The network comprised of academic medical centers, hospitals and thousands of professionals is committed to advancing wound healing by creating, sharing, and activating wound prevention and care expertise.
Patients are evaluated and cared for by wound care trained physicians and nurses. In order to determine the cause of the ulcer, patient care is comprehensive and may include: examination of the wound, cultures or biopsies, vascular testing and referrals, the use of advanced dressings, removal of dead tissue in and around the wound, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
