What is a Wound?

A wound is an opening in the skin. Over one million wounds requiring medical care occur annually. In fact, approximately six million Americans suffer from chronic wounds caused by trauma, surgery, diabetes, arterial and venous disease, edema or pressure. Generally, wounds heal within eight weeks; however, healing may be delayed if you have circulation problems, diabetes, a collagen disease, history of radiation or an autoimmune disease. If you have a wound and it is slow to heal, it would be beneficial to talk with your primary care doctor and consider scheduling an appointment at one of our wound healing centers.

The Wound Healing Centers of Jefferson Health – Abington offer a highly-specialized service to assist patients who are challenged with treating a hard-to-heal wound or are living with a stoma or fistula. Our expertise and experience enable us to properly diagnose the cause of your wound and treat it accordingly.

Bandage and Scissors

We specialize in treating wounds or sores related to circulation, diabetes, trauma, radiation, and other underlying conditions such as collagen and autoimmune diseases. We are partners in each patient’s treatment. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, we provide individualized plans, non-invasive vascular studies, direct care, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, self-management education, and counseling by registered nurses trained in hyperbaric medicine and certified in wound care. In addition, our physicians specialize in Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Podiatry and Vascular Surgery, and are trained in wound care and hyperbaric medicine.

Research indicates that specialized centers for treating wounds improve outcomes by providing early and coordinated access to the full range of medical, surgical, and nursing interventions that may be required. Our Wound Healing Centers offer state-of-the-art innovative care and personalized attention to meet the patient’s needs. Healing is no longer just an outcome, but an expectation.
