Dr. Mark Shaw, Medical Director of Mount Nittany Health Center for Wound Care talks about recent developments in treatment for chronic wounds. The award-winning center has excellent healing rates and patient satisfaction ratings.

For the general population, wounds or cuts will scab, scar, and heal naturally, but for some, there is an interruption, or an arrested stage, in the progression of healing that will not occur organically.

Hypoxia, a condition in which the body or a specific area of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen, can be treated with special oxygen chambers.
Ideal patients for the Center for Wound Care have non-healing wounds, have diabetes or use insulin, or are overweight or obese.
