At Stony Brook Southampton Hospital’s Center for Advanced Wound Healing, our multidisciplinary team uses the most sophisticated wound care practices and advanced clinical approaches, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Each treatment plan is tailored to the individual patient to successfully advance the healing process. Most treatments are covered by Medicare/Medicaid, HMOs, and other private insurance plans. The course of treatment depends on what type of wound you have. During your first visit, our staff of physicians and nurses will evaluate your wound and review your medical history. You may also need special tests that give us information about circulation to the wound. Millions of Americans suffer from chronic wounds every year. Non-healing wounds may be caused by diabetes, cancer radiation therapy, poor circulation, or infection. Wounds that won’t heal can lead to painful disability and potential amputation. Our doctors, nurses and technicians are experienced in advanced wound healing techniques and limb preservation. We work with your physician to achieve the best personalized results for you, utilizing the latest medical research and technology to find the optimal treatment approach for each patient.
