Pope Paul Institute Physicians
Dr. Hilgers and his associates are great! They actually listen to their patients. The whole practice is built on immense respect for women. They see a woman's fertility for the gift from God that it is. I would recommend Pope Paul VI to anyone looking for a good OB/GYN and/or help with fertility challenges.

Dr. Jeffrey James Jenkins, MD
I went to Dr. Jenkins after the whole CHI thing. He was better than my old doc. He was able to get me in and made sure I was back at work quickly. His staff is pretty nice, too. Will be staying with him even if CHI gets their act together. Happy!

Dr. Perry Johnson is the best plastic surgeons around. I have had two procedures done by him; and both turned out wonderfully. I would recommend him to anyone considering getting any type of work done. He is one of the best!

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.
