My Experience with Dr. Mary Joan Black and her staff from Day one has benn a good experience that gets better each time I visit her office. Dr. Mary Joan Black gave me 98% use of my arm back, after a horrible experience I had with another well know Orthopedic Surgeon in Spartanburg. When I went to her, I had been through it with my previous Dr. I was tired of not having use of my left arm that after months of therapy, it didn't seem to get any better with little to no range of motion. I was so aggressive in what I thought I needed, she took her time with me and did what she knew was best, X-ray, Consult, then Surgery, which saved my left shoulder from what would have/could have been a possible left arm amputation. Dr. MARY JOAN BLACK WILL BE THE ONLY SURGEN I will ever allow preform any type of Surgery to my shoulder ever again in this lifetime. She is what we call in Black Vernacular English THA TRUTH... She in my opinion, is a super smart Dr. who is very capable in her field of medicine, who takes the time to make sure she is doing what is best for your body and recovery. Thank you Dr. Mary Joan Black and your awesome staff for all that you do to make my visit the BEST EVER!!!!!

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.
