Wound Care

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was first used in the military to treat divers and flyers with ‘the bends’ and altitude sickness. Scientific study has shown benefits of hyperbaric oxygen for many common medical conditions. Diabetic wounds, chronic infections in the bone and failed amputation flaps are common approved indications for hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

Dr. Scott McDearmont is a board certified surgeon with training at UT Southwestern in Dallas and 25-years’ experience. He has recently joined the team at the comprehensive wound healing center at CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital in Sulphur Springs.

“It is extremely gratifying for our team to see the profound results from hyperbaric oxygen treatment. Our patients and their families have sometimes been dealing with these wounds for weeks, months or even years.”

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy functions to deliver a higher concentration of oxygen to tissues. The patient is in a chamber under 2x atmospheric pressure breathing 100% oxygen. This therapy also helps activate substances and proteins in the blood that assist with wound healing. 

“We are expanding the ability for our team to offer hyperbaric oxygen treatments here in Sulphur Springs. It is a very exciting time for our patients,” said Dr. McDearmont.

Dr. McDearmont and the team at CHRISTUS are accepting new patients at 115 Airport Road in Sulphur Springs. Ask your health care provider or home health nurse to provide a referral or call 903-438-4670 for an appointment.
