Chamblee, Michael A, MD
I met Dr Chamblee and was very impressed with him. What other Drs didn't want to do which was listen to me, Dr Chamblee took the time to do so and did the necessary xrays on my knee. i learned from talking to him and looking at my xrays that nothing that he could do hasn't already been done. EXCEPT what was going to have to be done to get me out of this horrible knee pain. A total knee replacement. I right away said... Let's do it. I wanted to walk again. Cause at that point i was using a scooter to get around. He did surgery on right knee. And I was doing so good 2 months post op that he said that we could go ahead with the left knee. I said let's do it. And so far, all is good and I am post op on the second total knee replacement 1 week. I would recommend him to YOU or anyone else that has any joint or bone problems.

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Confait. I scratched my eye and she got me in immediately and was very nice. I will definitely see her again and already recommended her to a friend.
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.
