Wound Care Center

The Wound Care Center and Hyperbaric Medicine at St. Luke's Hospital has been providing comprehensive services in St. Louis since 1973. It was the first facility in the St. Louis region to utilize hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of select wounds.

We evaluate wounds from a whole body point of view.

A wound is considered to be any breakdown in the protective function of the skin, and can be caused by any number of different things. Cuts, abrasions, surgical incisions, pressure and even radiation, can cause wounds.

A chronic wound, is defined as a wound that does not heal in an orderly set of stages and in a predictable amount of time the way most wounds do; wounds that do not heal within three months are considered chronic.

The Wound Care Center evaluates not just the wound itself, but other medical and physical conditions in the body which make healing of the wound more difficult. When needed, referrals are made to general, vascular and plastic surgeons, infectious disease physicians, certified orthotists, physical therapists, home care, dietitians and the Social Services Department.

Consultation is available by appointment Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. by calling 314-205-6818. Please bring a list of allergies, medications and insurance card to your appointment.
