Wound Care

The Wound Care Interest Section focuses on the appropriate and comprehensive care of patients with skin and soft tissue injures and disorders.  We have established an excellent, multi-speciality wound care center. We approach problem wounds with the motto, "Treat the patient, not the wound," and we seek to understand the physiological and metabolic derangement that are the root causes for disordered wound healing in each of our patients. We then work closely with our colleagues in Internal Medicine and Surgery as well as with the patient's primary care team. We stress the importance of providing targeted therapies that are appropriate for the patient's clinical and psychological state, and and offer cutting edge interventions such as immunomodulators and skin substitutes.
