Advanced Wound Care

Comprehensive Wound Healing, Including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Advanced Wound Care at Temple University Hospital – Episcopal Campus is solely focused on healing all types of wounds, including those that are chronic or non-healing. Our team of experienced wound care specialists will work with you and your physician to assess your symptoms, determine the underlying cause of your non-healing wound, and customize a treatment plan to stimulate healing. Our treatment plan is designed to work with the care your own physician provides, so your health care team is always working together to provide the treatment that’s right for you.

If you or a loved one has a wound or an ulcer that has not started to heal within a month or has not healed entirely in two months, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic” or “non-healing” wound.

What Is a Chronic Wound?

There are many factors that can cause a wound to become chronic and there are many types of wounds. Some wounds are associated with complications from diabetes or poor circulation. Other types result from pressure ulcers and trauma. Chronic, non-healing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.

If you suffer with any of the following conditions, you may have a chronic or non-healing wound:

  • Wounds that are slow-to-heal or not healing

  • Foot or leg ulcers or wounds

  • Surgical wounds that have opened

  • Skin grafts or surgical flaps that are not healing

  • Internal injuries or open wounds caused by radiation therapy

  • Bone infection (called osteomyelitis)

  • Select acute traumatic and crush injuries
