Starkville Clinic for Women
As a new resident of Starkville, I wanted to find an exceptional clinic for all OB/GYN needs. Starkville Clinic for Women IS that exceptional place. The office is a busy place, but is run with efficiency, courtesy, compassion, and a wonderful level of experience and knowledge. My first visit included many different stops in the office, but I never felt rushed or like I was a problem. Besides having a lab on site, they also have ultrasound capabilities. Approximately fifteen minutes after my ultrasound I was sitting with my doctor again. She had already read them, and we were able to discuss the results!! It is wonderful to have that kind of exceptional care available anywhere. I will use SCW for all my OB/GYN needs, and have already recommended them to other women.

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.
