Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

Evidence-based care, advanced treatments and compassionate experts

BID Needham's Center for Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine

The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine at BID Needham specializes in treating all types of chronic wounds. Here, you’ll receive the most up-to-date treatments for wound healing. These include advanced dressings, sophisticated skin grafts and hyperbaric wound care. The treatments are based on the latest scientific advances and delivered in an outpatient setting by caring wound physicians, nurses and other specialists.

At our wound care center, we focus on improving your symptoms. But we also address the underlying cause of your wound. You can rely on us to help you feel better and to guide you in preventing future skin wounds.
