-- Dr. Donald Jolly is pleased to announce that the South Bay Hyperbaric Center in Irvine has been accepted by the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care for inclusion in its Global Wound Care Clinic/Facility Directory. “We are excited to be a member of the AAWC and have witnessed their contribution to the advancement of serious wound care in the US and throughout the world”. “The fastest way to advance any medical field is through the free sharing of knowledge between health care providers and AAWC provides that forum,” says Dr. Jolly.
The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care was conceived in 1995. It is the preeminent, multidisciplinary organization dedicated to the research and clinical application of evidence – based wound care. As a non-profit association, AAWC gives numerous benefits to build a collaborative wound care community for optimal care of those who suffer with chronic non-healing wounds.
“We encourage all wound care providers to support the AAWC http://aawconline.org
in their global outreach to provide the highest standard of care to all wound victims regardless of their access to modern facilities,”
says Dr. Jolly.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, (HBOT) is the most efficient method of transporting oxygen to cells throughout the body. Safe and painless, it uses pressurized oxygen administered inside a specially designed chamber to deliver oxygen to damaged tissues. This results in dramatic benefits for diabetic ulcers, burns, and other conditions in which poor circulation plays a role, but especially for difficult to heal wounds, which often result in amputations. HBOT therapy is recognized by Medicare and private insurance for diabetic conditions and all severe wound care cases. Even subtle oxygen deprivation resulting from poor circulation can hinder wound healing, and exacerbate conditions such as diabetic neuropathy.
Dr. Donald Jolly is the Chairman and CEO of the Richard A. Neubauer Research Institute, a non-profit organization established to further research, medical improvements, and education in Hyperbarics. He has studied in London, Aberdeen, Scotland and California with internationally renowned hyperbaric physicians and hospitals, developed research facilities in California, worked in Africa and Romania, and made great strides in research in the application of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Additionally, Dr. Jolly is the Executive Director of the state-of-the-
art hyperbaric oxygen treatment clinic South Bay Hyperbaric Center located in Irvine California. Prior to this, Dr. Jolly serviced as Executive Director of the Hyperbaric Medicine at the Whitaker Wellness Institute of Newport Beach, CA.
