Outpatient Services

Our highly skilled clinicians treat a variety of conditions on an outpatient basis, including Wound Care and Radiology Services. You are the center of your care, starting with an individualized program designed to help you reach recovery goals. We work with your treating physician to ensure your care continues seamlessly.

Outpatient Wound Care Clinic

Open Monday through Friday

The Kindred Hospital Dallas Wound Care Clinic is a comprehensive outpatient program designed for patients who may require ongoing medical management of problematic wounds. As a leader in wound care management in our community, we strive to provide patients with positive outcomes and restore patients to their optimal level of function.

Our patients and physicians rely on us to provide personalized care that is focused on the individualized needs of each patient. Because we know many of our patients are in pain and have difficulty walking, we provide easily accessible parking.

Outpatient Hyperbaric Medicine

Our  Wound Care Clinic provides outpatient hyperbaric oxygen therapy through large chambers. These chambers are designed to reduce patient anxiety – patients sit comfortably and are directly attended to at all times while in the chamber.

Patients can read books and magazines or watch TV on flat screens, listen to soothing music or sleep during their treatments.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the use of 100% oxygen under greater-than-normal atmospheric pressures to increase the delivery of oxygen to the tissues. The tissue is super-saturated with oxygen and new capillary growth occurs. Healing occurs in a shorter time.

The Wound Care Clinic has fully trained and certified hyperbaric medicine physicians and staff. This specialty team works together to create the best treatment plan for each patient.

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society’s Committee on Hyperbaric Oxygen has approved the use of HBOT as adjunctive or primary treatment for the conditions below:

  • Select chronic, non-healing wounds
  • Chronic refractory osteomyelitis
  • Skin grafts and flaps (compromised)
  • Acute traumatic peripheral ischemia
  • Crush injuries and suturing of severed limbs
  • Acute peripheral arterial insufficiency
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Soft tissue radionecrosis
  • Diabetic wounds of the lower extremities
  • Acute thermal burns 
  • S/p bladder prostate cancer 
  • S/p oral surgery
  • Exceptional blood loss (anemia)
  • Intracranial abscess
