Dr. Marion E Milstead, MD
Dr. Milstead is an exemplary surgeon & human being. In 1984, when I was 16, I cut my right thumb off in a table saw accident. Dr. Milstead took care of my like I was his own child. Unfortunately the saw did too much damage to my thumb so it had to be removed 7 days after Dr. Milstead reattached it. For the next 5 years Dr. Milstead used his GREAT talents to allow me to once again be able fully use my right hand again. I was right handed and thanks to Dr. Milstead still right handed. I will ALWAYS be appreciative to Dr. Milstead for what he has done for me. I continue to see Dr. Milstead from time to time over the last 30 years and I consider him a friend. I have trusted him to perform surgery on my hand over 10 times. I can't say enough about how a AWESOME Doctor and person he is.

I love this doctor and his nurses. My appointments were quick and he had wonderful bedside manners. Even when I was giving birth to my daughter, me and him were joking around about stuff and having general conversations. His nurses and staff are wonderful too.

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.
