Advanced Wound Care & HBOT
Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, the Southern California Wound Healing Center team will evaluate patients through a diagnostic examination to identify the type of wound as well as the underlying problems causing the wound. After this, a treatment program specifically tailored to the patient's needs will be created utilizing the most effective treatment options.
Certain wounds will require hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which involves placing the patient in a sealed chamber for two hours, while they breathe in 100% pure oxygen at a pressure greater than sea level. Treatments in the hyperbaric chamber are for two hours, five days per week, for a total of 30-60 treatments.
Patients will be treated by a multidisciplinary team of board-certified physicians – general surgeons, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, internists, geriatricians, infectious disease specialists, physiatrists and clinical wound specialists – all maintaining the goal of successful healing and reducing the risk of amputation and/or disability.
Dr. Millington is also the Director of Hyperbaric Medicine for the Thousand Oaks Surgical Hospital Center for Hyperbaric Medicine which is also in the building at 2166 N Moorpark Ave, Thousand Oaks, CA.
