If you're looking for a GREAT surgeon, Dr. Ford is the expert you need to see. I can't thank him enough for how he's helped me. He looked out for my health and when the hospital tried to charge me more after the surgery he took care of that also. He went above and beyond all the way around. Always there just a phone call away. I highly recommend Dr. Ford, I truly believe he is the BEST! I had my hernia surgery back in August of 2016. Everything went smooth and I haven't had any problems since. It's so nice not to look down and see a big lump sticking out on my belly that was impossible to hide for over 30 years. I wound up losing my belly button it was totally destroyed. I waited so long it was beyond repair. I can honestly say I don't miss it at all. I tell everyone I'm an alien. My wife has always told me that I am out of this world. I couldn't be happier with the results so do yourself a favor and see Dr. Ford. -Thanks, Ray Williams

Dr. Lominchar has been my PCP since 2006. I will not venture out to look for another doctor. She is the best I've ever had! Kind, honestly and seriously interested in your thoughts about your condition. She takes her time when looking at all the pieces of your medical puzzle and knows exactly what to do. My family loves her and her super talented staff. We will always be loyal to Dr. Lominchar and her staff.

I would highly recommend Dr. Hamilton. She is the most compassionate, caring, and knowledgeable doctor I've ever seen. She will listen and help you with any issues that you have. All of the employees at Charleston Ob/Gyn are friendly and make you feel comfortable. I've never had an unreasonable wait time or felt rushed. Thank you Dr. Hamilton for being the BEST!

My experience here is top flight. Both Drs Slesinger and Buthorne put me at ease. Most amazing to me is the absence of pain both during and after my surgeries. I appreciated the private waiting room provided between surgery, skin testing and stitching. They have a nice treatment environment with views of the low country which is comforting to me.

He is very professional and makes you feel welcome every visit. They are a very busy office and it takes a while to get an appointment, but very worth it!!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
