University Wound Care and Hyperbaric Center

There's no longer any reason to live with an open wound or chronic ulcer.

In the U.S., chronic wounds affect approximately 7 million patients. At our Healogics Wound Care Center we treat these wounds and work to prevent a recurrence by correcting contributing factors such as controlling infection and enhancing medical and nutritional status.

A Multidisciplinary Approach

The Wound Care Center is staffed with a unique team of specialists all dedicated to healing chronic wounds and led by Medical Director, Mitchell Goldman, MD. The combined knowledge of our team members creates a multidisciplinary approach to wound management. We are dedicated to healing wounds that have not responded to traditional treatment.
