First dedicated wound care centre in Bengaluru
The centre is armed with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurised chamber
Dalvkot Wound Care (DWC), a one-of-its-kind wound care centre, launched its first dedicated wound care centre at Vydehi Campus, Whitefield, Bengaluru. DWC, a brain child of Dr Mahesh Kottapalli, M.D. – Infectious Diseases Consultant and Wound Care Specialist in Dallas, Texas, USA, aims to provide non-invasive and effective remedies to chronic wound problems and also offers the ‘Limb Salvage Program’, which was not available in India until now.
The centre is armed with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurised chamber. DWC has installed a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber to accelerate the healing of chronic wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability, as well as infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy, or in conjunction with other drugs. This procedure can be performed as an Outpatient Day (OPD) Care procedure and does not require hospitalisation.
