St. Vincent's Center For Wound Healing
State of the art care for proper healing.
St. Vincent’s for Wound Healing provides specialized treatment for chronic or non-healing wounds, which are defined as sores or wounds that have not significantly improved from conventional treatments. Associated with inadequate circulation, poorly functioning veins, and immobility, non-healing wounds lead to lower quality of life and may lead to amputations. When wounds persist, a specialized approach is required for healing. Typically, a wound that does not respond to normal medical care within 30 days is considered a problem or chronic wound.
That’s where our Wound Healing Services can help. With the state-of-the-art treatments available including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn.
The advanced treatments available at the center include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies. The center features Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) chambers. For more information, Click Here.
The center is designed to complement and work in conjunction with the services offered by the patients’ primary care physicians. It operates by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please call (203) 581-6501 or Click Here for more information.
