Advanced solutions for problem wounds
A wound or sore that won’t heal is more than a nuisance. It can be frightening - with good reason. The longer a wound takes to heal, the greater the risk of serious infection.
Some people - including those with diabetes - are particularly prone to slow-healing and related risks. That’s why a growing number of patients are coming to HackensackUMC Mountainside for treatment by our wound care specialists.
We put sophisticated wound care protocols and advanced clinical approaches including hyperbaric oxygen therapy to work for our patients to reduce healing time, improve healing rates and prevent possible limb loss. In fact, patients who’ve suffered from chronic wounds for months - even years - are routinely restored to health in a shorter time than they ever thought possible.
Collaborative multidisciplinary care
A panel of 10 physicians representing diverse disciplinesincluding Anesthesiology, Cardiology, Emergency Medicine, Plastic Surgery, Podiatry, Rehabilitation Medicine and Vascular Surgery collaborate to provide you with the highest level of appropriately targeted treatment.
Our multidisciplinary team of skilled, specially trained specialists uses the latest, state-of-the-art healing techniques including HbOT (in partnership with Restorix). They also never forget the importance of treating patients with respect and kindness.
Ultimately, you’ll play the most important role in the healing of your chronic wound. That’s why our team will help you understand the healing process and teach you ways to protect yourself from another chronic wound.
