Wounds can be caused by injury, disease (such as diabetes), a surgical incision, poor blood supply to a body area, poor nutrition or other factors. Most wounds heal naturally over time, but in some patients this process does not happen as it should. Such wounds are referred to as chronic wounds.
At Stamford Hospital's Wound Care Center, we offer aggressive treatment for chronic wounds, and are able to help 90 percent of our patients to heal completely in less than two months. Our advanced outpatient wound treatment has helped to save limbs that might otherwise have required future amputation.
Patients may be referred to this surgical specialty center by a physician, healthcare professional or may be self-referred.
We offer diagnostic assessment,
specialty wound dressings, debridement, skin grafts/substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and more.
Our most recent patient satisfaction ratings were above 98 percent. See what our patients have to say about our services.
We are conveniently located in the same building as the Diabetes & Endocrine Center, at 1351 Washington Boulevard in downtown Stamford.
