Dalvkot Wound Care (DWC) has now stormed into India to set base in the Vydehi Campus, Whitefield, Bengaluru with a dedicated wound care centre equipped with the USFDA approved Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) that will enable limb salvage in chronic patients.

Limb Salvage Program was not available in India until now. Lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, cardio, respiratory and cancer which lead to wounds have also become major issues to contend with.

Now we offer the latest technologies to treat chronic wounds under expert clinical care. The centre will also provide treatments for Diabetic Foot Care, Post-Operative Wounds, Endovascular Procedures, Vascular & Laser Therapy and Rehabilitation programmes where lesions on the body are a challenge to treat. India reports scores of wound cases . There is need for both knowledge and technology as the medical procedures are complex to treat acute and chronic wounds, Dr Mahesh Kottapalli president, Dalvkot Wound Care said a press conclave.

Dr. Kottapalli who is an Infectious Diseases Consultant and Wound Care Specialist from the US was in India to speak about Sepsis. The concept of setting of a would clinic within the Vydehi Hospital campus came about after gauging number of patients impacted by lesions and undergoing amputation.

“Those who access this facility can be prevented from life threatening conditions and amputation. DWC has non-invasive and effective remedies to treat chronic wound problems. It installed the 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. This procedure does not require hospitalization and is performed as an as out-patient or day care, he added.

Further HBOT can also be used for infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy or in conjunction with other drugs. Our panel of wound care specialists who are certified endovascular, cardio and laparoscopy surgeons along with 50 trained wound care nurses can help patients heal their wounds faster with better clinical and technological facilities, said Dr. Kottapalli.

The cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for 10-12 sittings which spans for 90 minutes each costs approximately Rs.40,000 to Rs 50,000, though it varies in each patient healing response. This 25- bed unit single chamber HBOT required an investment of around Rs.2.5 crore, stated Dr DV Chalapathy, Director, DWC.

With the consolidation of this unit at Vydehi, plans are underway to set up 25 centres covering Hyderabad, Chennai and other northern India markets which could either be standalone or part of a hospital. Since wounds manifest considerably among economically backward patients, efforts to team-up with the state governments under Aarogyasri and the Arogya Bhagya schemes are also been explored, said Dr. Kottapalli.
