Radiation Therapy Wounds

Because the radiation used to destroy tumor cells can also destroy normal cells, people undergoing radiation therapy for cancerous tumors may suffer tissue damage as a side effect of their treatment. If the radiation has also damaged the blood vessels in the area of the affected tissue, it may be difficult for the wounded area to heal. In these cases, advanced wound healing protocols like those used at the Winthrop Wound Healing Center, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy to promote the growth of new blood vessels, may be required for the wound to heal properly.
