Great River Physician Receives Wound Specialist Certification

November 18, 2005 – Mark Buettner, D.O., has been certified as a wound specialist by the American Academy of Wound Management. He is one of only three physicians in Iowa to hold a wound-specialist certification. Dr. Buettner is medical director of Great River Wound and Hyperbaric Clinic, which is a service of Great River Center for Rehabilitation.

The Wound and Hyperbaric Clinic offers a comprehensive approach to the care of chronic wounds. The clinic features two top-of-the-line hyperbaric oxygen therapy chambers for the treatment of difficult-to-heal wounds.

Dr. Buettner, who was named the clinic’s medical director earlier this year, received his medical degree from Oklahoma State University and completed his residency at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Wash. Besides his wound specialist certification, he also is board certified in emergency medicine by the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
