There are many types of wounds that can damage the skin including abrasions, lacerations, rupture injuries, punctures and penetrating wounds. Many wounds are minor and require only local first aid that includes cleansing and dressing. Some wounds, however, are deeper and need medical attention to prevent infection and loss of function due to damage to underlying structures like bone, muscle, tendon, arteries and nerves.

Wounds that do not heal in four weeks or more often have underlying medical conditions that if left untreated could cause serious, even permanent damage. These types of wounds require specialized care from the Wound Healing Center.

The Wound Healing Center is a hospital-based, outpatient center that diagnoses and treats chronic wounds. Our multidisciplinary approach makes us uniquely equipped to heal chronic wounds and non-responsive conditions. The Wound Healing Center brings together a panel of specialists from the University of Maryland School of Medicine, UMMC Midtown Campus and community physicians, including vascular and general surgeons, infectious disease clinicians, family medicine practitio­ners and podiatrists, to ensure that patients are offered the most effective and coordinated treatment options.
