Beebe Healthcare announced podiatrist Sandeep Khehra, DPM, has joined Beebe Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine. Khehra is working with patients who have ongoing wound issues. She has a special interest in diabetic foot wounds, which can often be the hardest to heal.
“I am excited to work with the team here at Beebe Wound Healing because there are many innovative treatments we are using now to better heal injuries,” said Khehra.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy uses increased levels of oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber to help improve wound healing when the standard of care has failed. Beebe Wound Healing uses BaraMed hyperbaric oxygen chambers, and it recently added a third chamber to provide services for a growing number of patients.
Beebe Wound Healing is now using codfish skin grafts, which closely resemble human skin, sourced from the chilly waters of the Atlantic. Sterilized grafts are applied to wounds and have been shown to heal better than damaged human tissue. These grafts, along with many other types of cellular tissue, are applied in the office at Beebe Wound Healing.
SonicOne ultrasound debridement is used in the office to help remove damaged tissue from wounds. The machine allows Beebe Wound Healing practitioners to be highly selective of the tissue to remove, while reducing blood loss and minimizing pain for the patient.
Khehra grew up in California and attended University of California at Berkeley for her undergraduate degree in integrative biology. She earned her doctorate in podiatric medicine at Temple University in Philadelphia. She went on to complete a three-year residency at Crozer Chester Medical Center where she discovered her passion for wound care and healing. After completing her residency, she and her husband, podiatrist Allen Mirzaei, DPM, moved to Sussex County.
Since 1998, Beebe Healthcare’s Wound Healing program has provided state-of-the-art wound care for the community. Beebe’s outcomes-driven program focuses on healing wounds quickly. The healing rate is consistently greater than 98 percent, exceeding the national average. Many of these wounds have gone untreated for weeks or months before receiving specialized wound care.
Beebe Wound Healing & Hyperbaric Medicine is at Beebe’s Rehoboth Beach Health Campus in Suite 210 of the Medical Arts Building.
