Our team of specially trained physicians oversees chronic, non-healing wounds and provides evidenced-based care to heal your wound(s). Generally, the physician presently treating your wound will refer you to the Healing Center, or you can make your appointment directly.

Together with your physician, we'll develop a treatment program based on our assessment of your special needs. Your program will likely involve regular visits to the center.
We are in constant communication with your doctor throughout your care. Once your wound is healed, you'll return to your doctor for follow-up care. And, of course, you'll continue with your personal doctor for any related ailments like diabetes and hypertension.
Much of the success of your treatment depends on you. We'll count on you to follow directions carefully and watch your progress closely. You'll learn about caring for your wound at home, including how to change dressings and how to protect yourself from further injuries. We're always here to answer questions and give you the support you need to heal.
