Specialized Wound Care Treatment
Patients with diabetes, poor circulation or other serious conditions can develop chronic wounds that do not heal over weeks, months or even years. These wounds are susceptible to infection causing pain for the patient and greatly impacting their quality of life. Preventing the spread of infection and treating the wound are key in order to improve mobility and avoid amputation. Studies have shown that dedicated wound treatment facilities can improve outcomes for patients suffering from non-healing and chronic wounds.
University Hospitals Center for Wound Care is a fully integrated, clinical wound care program offering convenient locations and experienced wound care specialists throughout Northeast Ohio. Our priority is preventing and treating wounds, as well as identifying patients who can be healed fully with earlier or more aggressive treatment.
