Centegra Wound & Hyperbaric Center, managed by Diversified Clinical Services, provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations.

- Pain management
In addition to these comprehensive treatments, the adjunctive use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven effective in reduced swelling, fighting infection, and building new blood vessels, ultimately producting healthy tissue.
