The Wound Healing Center at UMMC Midtown Campus provides advanced therapies to treat nonhealing wounds and a range of other nonresponsive conditions. The outpatient center brings together a variety of specialists: hyperbaric oxygen specialists, vascular and general surgeons, infectious disease experts, family practitioners, and podiatrists all collaborate on patient care.
All center specialists are knowledgeable of the latest treatments in wound healing and use evidence-based therapies patterned after national models. A dedicated physician and nurse case manager team is assigned to each patient to ensure that each patient receives coordinated care and has the best chance for an optimal outcome.
The center treats a range of nonhealing wounds, from venous, pressure, arterial, and diabetic ulcers to delayed radiation tissue damage and human, animal, and spider bites. It offers four treatment rooms, two monoplace hyperbaric oxygen chambers, and a newly expanded vascular labs.
