Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
CarePoint Health - Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Hoboken University Medical Center - launched its 2014 Lunch and Learn education series. These Lunch and Learn events provide information on interesting health topics.
CarePoint Health kicked off the lecture series on January 16, 2014 with a Wound Care presentation from Dr. Emran Sheikh, a nerve reconstruction surgeon and Medical Director for the wound care center at HUMC.
The Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Therapy at CarePoint Health - HUMC provides the latest cutting-edge technology in wound treatment, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), a medical treatment that places the patient suffering from chronic wounds in a pressurized oxygen chamber to enhance the body’s natural healing and strengthens the immune system. CarePoint Health has two centers for wound care and hyperbaric therapy located at Hoboken University Medical Center and Bayonne Medical Center.
“Because chronic wounds detract from the quality of life for so many patients, we knew it was paramount to take the lead in Hudson County and provide the best possible wound healing treatment,” said Christina Mulleady, BSN, RN, Director of Wound Care Services at Bayonne Medical Center.
The Centers apply proven wound care practices and advanced clinical approaches to all types of wounds, including leg ulcers, vascular wounds, bone infections, radiation tissue damage, diabetes-related wounds, and slow-healing wounds. "The Centers for Wound Care emphasize a ‘whole body’ approach to wound care, focusing on a wide range of wound types and going far beyond diabetic foot care offered by other hospitals,” said Dr. Emran Sheikh.
