I have been a patient Dr. Spagnuloa's for over 5 years and thanks to him I have two new knees and a very successful shoulder repair on my right arm with full range of motion. I highly recommend him to my friend and co-workers all the time and many have used his service with the same satisfaction. Dr. Spagnuloa has been my hero!

Dr. Chris is great. He is able to explain things clearly to the layman so that I was able to understand the pain and what I can expect over the next few weeks. The admin staff are very accommodating and personable. They were able to get me an an appointment on short notice, and there was minimal wait time.

My overall experience with the Doctor and the staff have been great. The only complaint I have is that I had to wait so long for an appointment. But that is usually true of the better doctors.

Very glad I came here. This is the first doctor who listened and didn't,t simply pass my problem off as arthritis. I finally feel reassured that my problem is being treated correctly.

First time. Very pleasant staff, and the doctor was through and took his time to explain my injury, how I may feel and what I should look out for. Overall a very pleasant experience.
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.
