About

Professional Statement

Peter Ro, M.D., is the medical director of the Swedish/Edmonds Center for Wound Healing & Hyperbarics. Dr. Ro is board certified in both emergency medicine and hyperbaric medicine and has more than 12 years of experience specializing in wound healing. Chronic wounds can lead to disability and limb loss. The goal of wound therapy is to prevent amputation and help patients maintain maximum function. In addition to advanced woundhealing therapies, Dr. Ro utilizes hyperbaric oxygen therapy to treat chronic wounds. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides additional oxygen to body tissues to help wounds heal faster. “When a patient’s wound won’t heal, our center is a resource committed to providing the best care,” says Dr. Ro. “I believe in a collaborative approach.” Dr. Ro enjoys spending time getting to know his patients and earning their trust. “I always try to give my patients options in treating their wounds,” he says.
