Advanced Wound Healing Care at UPMC Bedford
Our Wound Care Center can be especially helpful for individuals suffering from a chronic or complex wound. Chronic wounds are caused when the body’s healing process is delayed, usually as a result of common health problems such as diabetes or poor circulation. If chronic wounds are left untreated, these wounds can become larger, more painful, and can cause serious health issues.
UPMC Wound Healing Services at Bedford offers the latest wound healing technologies and a range of advanced, effective outpatient treatments including:
- Negative pressure wound therapy.
- Bioengineered skin substitutes and advanced dressings.
- Advanced medical and surgical wound care.
- Compression wraps.
- Wheelchairs, crutches, or casts for foot ulcers.
- Ostomy care.
- Nutrition help and resources.
- Amputation prevention.
Our specially trained team will educate you and your family on proper wound care, nutrition, diabetes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and wound prevention throughout your course of treatment. The team also coordinates specialty services including home health, nutritional counseling, physical therapy, occupational therapy, smoking cessation, and orthotics as needed to speed wound healing.
