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.
