Specialized care for complex wounds

A wound that doesn’t heal can generate many complex challenges. Thanks to recent advances in the field of wound care, quite effective treatments are now available for healing chronic wounds. South Shore Hospital's Center for Wound Healing provides leading-edge diagnostic and treatment methods designed to evaluate and promote the healing process.

Because each wound is unique, patients undergo thorough evaluations to identify and assess their wounds, determine the underlying causes of the resistance to healing, and tailor an individualized treatment plan.

Various diagnostic and treatment methods may be part of a patient’s wound care, including:

  • Infectious disease management
  • Physical therapy
  • Vascular evaluation
  • Laboratory evaluation
  • Nutritional management
  • Pain management
  • Diabetic education
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Radiology
