ROCKWALL, TX (Jan. 13, 2014) Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Rockwall is pleased to introduce Dr. Kaustubh Mestry as the director of the wound care and hyperbaric medicine center. Dr. Mestry has extensive experience treating patients, including those with very complicated and difficult to treat wounds.
“We are excited about the expansion of our wound care center, especially as the need for these services has increased. With the commitment Dr. Mestry brings to his patients, we are confident they will notice a substantial benefit from his treatment plans,” said Lance Holmes, Senior Director of Business Development at Texas Health Rockwall.
Dr. Mestry is certified through the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine and is also board certified in family medicine. He completed fellowships in wound care/hyperbaric medicine and geriatric medicine through the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.
“I am excited to serve Rockwall and the surrounding communities partnering with patients, care providers and members of the healthcare community to offer advanced wound care therapeutics and hyperbaric medicine services,” Dr. Mestry said. “Wound care and hyperbaric medicine is challenging and fascinating and I find it immensely rewarding to formulate treatment plans to assist healing all types of wounds as well as manage acute tissue injuries. In the near future I look forward to utilizing hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat diabetic foot ulcers, osteomyelitis, soft tissue radiation injuries, peripheral limb ischemia as well as other approved indications that facilitate tissue and limb salvage, lower amputation rates and improve the lives of those managing these chronic, debilitating illnesses.”
