Central Pennsylvania residents suffering from hard-to-heal wounds can now find a wound center right in their backyard – Advanced Wound Healing Center of UPMC Carlisle's unique team of highly-trained physicians, nurses, technicians, and foot specialists can help sufferers get their lives back. They specialize in non-healing wounds – those that have resisted healing after months and even years of traditional treatment. The three main types of wounds treated at the Advanced Wound Healing Center are pressure ulcers, venous ulcers, and diabetic ulcers.
By using well-researched, proven techniques, the Center’s multi-disciplinary team provides healing and relief for patients who previously thought their wounds were irreparable or would ultimately result in amputation.

If you have a sore or wound that hasn’t started to get significantly better in a month, or healed entirely in two months, you should ask your doctor about a referral to the Advanced Wound Healing Center of UPMC Carlisle.
A physician referral is not necessary. Individuals may call the Center directly to make an appointment for evaluation. The evaluation usually includes a physical examination, lab work, and other special tests to determine the flow of blood and oxygen to the wound.
Please note that wound healing often requires a long-term course of treatment. Results are generally not achieved overnight. We urge our patients to have patience and faith, and we will do our very best to help them regain control of their wound healing problem.
If you have any questions or need more information, please feel free to call us. We will try to answer your inquiry quickly and help you get the answers you need to take any necessary next steps.
