Wound Healing Services at UPMC East

Wound Healing Services at UPMC East offers a patient-centered treatment approach, focused on treating patients with nonhealing wounds. If you or a loved one has a wound or sore that has not healed in 30 days, you may have what is referred to as a “chronic, nonhealing” wound.

Often complicated by underlying conditions such as diabetes, circulation problems, or previous radiation treatment, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem because the body’s normal healing process is affected. Other types of chronic wounds result from pressure, trauma, or infection.

Conditions We Treat at UPMC East

Chronic, nonhealing wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life. UPMC East offers advanced treatment options for all types of nonhealing wounds, including:

  • Trauma wounds
  • Arterial/ischemic ulcers
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Nonhealing, post-surgical wounds
  • Post-radiation ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Burns
  • Other slow-to-heal or nonhealing wounds

What to Expect

During your initial visit, our medical team will perform a physical examination, giving particular attention to your wound, and will gather your comprehensive medical history. Please bring a list of your current medications and the dosages currently prescribed. Additional studies may be ordered, such as:

  • Blood tests
  • Cultures
  • Tests to evaluate venous and/or arterial circulation
  • X-rays and other imaging procedures

Our wound care experts have years of experience and offer a multidisciplinary team approach, collaborating with other specialists as needed to help heal your wound in a timely manner. With state-of-the-art treatments and technology available including debridement, advanced dressing selection, vacuum-assisted closure, offloading devices, and education, people with nonhealing and chronic wounds in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh now have a place to turn. We also partner with nearby UPMC McKeesport to offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which can be used to treat an array of nonhealing wounds.
