Sulphur Springs, Texas, June 19, 2023 – CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs has ONE mission: To Extend the Healing Ministry of Jesus Christ.

Comprehensive Wound Care

Diabetic wounds, vascular wounds, traumatic wounds, burns or any other chronic non-healing wound can benefit from the specialized care provided at our comprehensive wound care clinic, led by Board Certified Wound Specialist, Dr. Scott McDearmont, right here at home in Sulphur Springs.

One modality that we have available at our wound care clinic is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy gives several types of wounds a better chance to heal when other more traditional modalities are not successful. 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. Diabetic wounds, chronic infections in the bone and failed amputation flaps are common approved indications for hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

Dr. McDearmont and the Wound Care team at CHRISTUS are accepting new patients at 115 Airport Road in Sulphur Springs. For more information, talk to your primary care physician, or call 903-438-4670 for more information.
