Local wound specialist awarded certification

Karan Prakash, MD, MS, FAAOS of the Southside Regional Medical Center (SRMC) Wound Healing Center in Petersburg, is board-certified in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine by the American Board of Preventive Medicine, according to information from SRMC.

Created in partnership with industry leader National Healing, SRMC Wound Healing Center offers hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) to treat wounds that have not responded to traditional treatments as well as for more rare conditions in patients that are referred by a variety of medical specialists. The therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the blood, allowing oxygen to pass more easily through the plasma into the wounds to heal them.

Dr. Prakash is board-certified by American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He received his undergraduate degree from Delhi University and Doctor of Medicine from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, completed his residency at Medical College of Virginia and completed his fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine.

He is affiliated with Southside Regional Medical Center, John Randolph Medical Center, Richmond Community Hospital, St. Francis Medical Center and CJW Medical Centers.  He is currently serving as the Chief of Staff at Southside Regional Medical Center.
