Why choose the Wound Healing Institute at MedStar Health?
We see a high number of patients every year, giving us unmatched experience. We focus exclusively on helping patients prevent, manage, and treat complex wounds. Because of this, we've helped thousands of patients return to work, hobbies, and daily life completely healed. This experience allows us to tailor your treatment based on your unique needs.
We offer the latest, innovative therapies and surgical approaches that heal wounds, save limbs, and prevent future injuries. From ultrasonic wound debridement to state-of-the-art limb salvage surgery, our specialists are leaders in the latest healing techniques. As a result, we've established an impressive record of healing wounds others thought hopeless, including many that might have required amputation. Our carefully researched methods allow patients to receive innovative treatment for wounds that have resisted healing despite months, or even years, of conventional treatment.
You'll gain access to our entire network of internationally-recognized wound experts. Our Wound Healing Institute is composed of multidisciplinary specialists with advanced training, experience, and interest in podiatric, reconstructive, and vascular surgery, as well as endocrinologists, rheumatologists, internal medicine physicians, and others. This team approach ensures we're equipped to meet any unique need that may arise, whether you see us in Baltimore or Washington, D.C. For example, if your care team recommends hyperbaric oxygen therapy, we can seamlessly coordinate your care with our colleagues at the Wound Healing Institute at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital or MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
