Dalvkot Wound Care (DWC) sets up its First Dedicated Wound Care Centre in Bangalore

Plans to set up 25 bed facility currently out of Bengaluru & open at least 25 more centres across India~

Dalvkot Wound Care (DWC), a one-of-its-kind wound care centre, launched its first dedicated wound care centre at Vydehi Campus, Whitefield, Bengaluru today. DWC, a brain child of Dr Mahesh Kottapalli, M.D. – Infectious Diseases Consultant and Wound Care Specialist in Dallas, Texas, USAaims to provide non-invasive and effective remedies to chronic wound problems and also offers the ‘Limb Salvage Program’, which was not available in India until now.

Today, the hectic urban lifestyle trend tends to take a toll on our health and well-being, thus leading us to suffer from lifestyle disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, cardio respiratory issues and cancer. Chronic ailments and wounds from such disorders have also become major issues to contend with. DWC is dedicated to changing the way people view wound care and to offer the best and latest technologies to treat chronic wounds with expert clinical care. The centre will also provide treatments for Diabetic Foot Care, Post-Operative Wounds, Endovascular Procedures, Vascular & Laser Therapy and Rehabilitation programmes.

The centre is armed with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. DWC has installed a 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, as well as infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy or in conjunction with other drugs. This procedure can be performed as an Outpatient Day (OPD) Care procedure and does not require hospitalization.

Speaking on the occasion of setting up DWC at Vydehi Campus, Dr Mahesh Kotapalli said, “Several clinical survey reports have revealed that India lacks dedicated and affordable wound care in a time when complexities due to wounds can be life-threatening.  At DWC, we have set up HBOT which will use Hyperbaric Oxygen to treat all conditions that will benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability. 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. DWC’s commitment is to provide excellent healthcare, and to prevail in the battle against wounds, quickly and effectively. I am sure that with DWC, we can help people heal their wounds faster with better clinical and technological facilities.”

DWC has an extremely talented and experienced team of wound care specialists as well as certified endovascular, cardio and laparoscopy surgeons. They are supported by a team of 50 trained wound care nurses. The cost of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for 10-12 sittings for 1-1.5 hrs is approximately INR 40-45K, although it varies due to individual patient healing response.

 

Dr DV Chalapathy, Director, DWC further added, “DWC as dedicated wound care is a pioneering effort in India. At our facility, we have set up the latest technology single chamber HBOT (USFDA approved) costing close to INR 2.5 crore. The wound care centre also set up a 25-bed facility in Bengaluru. With this, we plan to expand our footprint to at least 25 more centres all over India. I am delighted that DWC is all set to mark a new chapter on affordable, focused & next-gen wound management in India.’’
