When I called Dr. Rudzki’s office last year, I was in tears. Hours before I was training for the Marine Corp Marathon … now I was reduced to lying on my couch with a giant bag of ice on my knee. I had jumped off the road to avoid a cyclist, twisted my knee, and I had felt the dreaded “pop”. For me, running was more than just fitness, it was essential to managing the stress of law school. When Dr. Rudzki saw me the next morning and informed me that I needed an MRI to confirm I had ruptured my ACL, I recall aggressively asserting that“I couldn’t afford to be injured or surgery”. Dr. Rudzki promised he would do everything he could to help me. AND he exceeded his promise. His was compassionate, understanding and still managed to keep me from pushing too hard and jeopardize my reconstructed ACL. Despite my initially concerns that he was “out-of-network”, he was very generous - the rate was AMAZING! Next week I will participate in my first sprint triathlon. THANK YOU DR. RUDZKI

Two years ago, our pediatrician recommended Dr. Rudzki after MY 17year old son dislocated his arm, resulting a lesion in his shoulder. We are extremely thankful for the recommendation. Dr. Rudzki spent almost an hour discussing shoulder instability with my son. He explained how he uses current medical research, including studies from professional athletes, to guide the rehab process after surgery. Dr. Rudzki was very thoughtful regarding the timing of the surgery, allowing my son to finish his fall term exam and coordinating with his teachers for the 6 weeks he was in a sling. Dr. Rudzki participated in frequent phone conversations with my son's physical therapist and lacrosse coaches - providing valuable guidance as he returned to sport. He truly understood all aspects of patient care in treating high school athletes - including the academic and social pressures. I have recommended Dr. Rudzki to several of my son's teammates, and their families were equally impressed.

Dr. Talib was at GW when my wife suffered a brain aneurysm 11 years ago. This was before the time of Yelp and social media as we know it today so I never got a chance to publicly thank her and acknowledge the help she afforded me and the family during a most difficult time. I am happy to say my wife is alive today and living a normal life. Recently, my cousin ended up in ICU at GW and Dr. Talib was onsite at GW. He too has been discharged and is recovering at home. So now I am taking time to publicly thank Dr. Talib for being there for my wife and my cousin. She is a dedicated, competent, compassionate, caring and gifted doctor. Thorough in her approach, comprehensive in her solutions and diligent about her follow up. These are three qualities not readily found in the medical profession today. If you are ever in need of a specialist in internal medicine-look no further. Dr. Talib is it. As good as they come. A+++

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.
