Sarantos Peter MD
Dr. Sarantos is a great surgeon. He saved my life and he is very humble about it. He is a pleasant, caring and thorough doctor. I have had many great doctors, but Dr. Sarantos is by far, my favorite. He followed me and cared for me as long as it took for me to get better and then rejoiced with me in my victories and was comforting with my insecurities. I believe in him and he believed in me.

I am very pleased with the care my family member recieved here. We saw Dr. Reddy and she was wonderful. You could tell she really listened and cared about what you said to her. I totally reccomend her to any one I know. The administrative staff was very responsive to our appointment requests too. Great team. Thank you for the care given to my family!

He replaced my right shoulder around 4 or 5 years ago. I can do everything with it. I can raise it straight up it looks like I need my left shoulder done,and I will be going to him again.
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.
