Wound Healing Program

The Department of Family and Social Medicine's Wound Healing Program provides exceptional care to patients with chronic wounds. Our specialists work with each patient from wound assessment and treatment to consultations on care management. We offer full examinations and directed treatment plans for patients with all chronic wound types, including pressure ulcers, leg and foot ulcers, post-radiation wounds, rheumatoid ulcers and sickle cell ulcers.

The wound care specialists at Montefiore coordinate care with a multidisciplinary team of specialists and the patient's physician to address underlying factors contributing to poor healing. Our treatment approaches include topical therapies, management of wound infections, debridement or the removal of infected or non-healing tissue, coordination of comorbid disease treatment, evaluation for necessary medical equipment and lifestyle counseling.

Our wound consultation team also evaluates and treats hospitalized patients, and our inpatient consultation service is available to patients at the Moses and North Campuses. Our team provides outpatient wound care at our Grand Concourse facility, which is accessible to disabled patients.
