Wound Care Services
The UHS Center for Advanced Wound Care benefits people suffering with Chronic Wounds by utilizing a personalized and targeted approach.
Almost 7 million people in the US are living with a chronic wound right now! A person with a wound has an average of 3 to 4 CHRONIC CONDITIONS like Diabetes, Peripheral Artery Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, and COPD.
Reasons for not healing can include poor circulation, infection, edema, insufficient nutrition/lack of protein, immobility, and continued trauma.
We have advanced therapies available including specialized dressings, skin substitutes and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
You do not need a referral from another provider, but to qualify for our services you must have an "OPEN WOUND" rather than a rash or a bump. We will be happy to speak with you on the phone before scheduling an appointment to make sure the services we offer are appropriate for your problem, or we will help you to determine what office would best serve your needs.
We are open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
