Welcome to the Wound Healing Institute at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital
Our staff at the Wound Healing Institute is a unique team of experienced doctors, nurses, and therapists whose combined knowledge creates a multi-disciplinary approach to wound management. Our center averages a 96.9 percent healing rate in 16 weeks or less, one of the highest in the nation. We are dedicated to caring for people with wounds that are chronic or have resisted traditional means of healing, such as diabetic ulcers and bone infections. We provide a comprehensive outpatient program with state-of-the-art wound treatments using the latest technology available. Our approach is to treat not only the wound itself, but the cause of the wound as well.
