Below are some of the treatment options we provide. Whenever appropriate during the course of treatment, our specialists also refer patients for laboratory tests, imaging (X-ray, MRI, CT scans), and surgery.
Medication – In most cases, initial treatment begins with oral medication (medication that is taken through the mouth). When oral medication is not appropriate, patients have two options for how they receive outpatient medication treatment (which may vary, depending on insurance coverage and patient preference):
- The Infusion Center at Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell: The Center provides intravenous or injectable treatments.
- Home Care: We work with a third party organization to help patients manage treatment from the convenience and comfort of their own homes.
Our specialists also provide inpatient care for those who are admitted to Capital Health Regional Medical Center and Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell to appropriately manage antibiotic treatment.
Hyperbaric therapy – Patients with qualifying conditions are referred to Capital Health’s Center for Wound Management and Hyperbaric Medicine for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. At the Center, patients are submerged in 100 percent oxygen while inside of a treatment chamber, at a pressure two to three times higher than sea level. This delivery of oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure (ATA) has proven to be an effective method for providing improved infection control and treating a variety of medical conditions. Appointments for hyperbaric therapy and wound care are scheduled by calling the Center at 609-537-7457.
