Wound Healing Institute

The Fisher-Titus Medical Center Wound Healing Institute is dedicated to healing patients with difficult-to-heal wounds. Such wounds are often the result of diabetes, circulatory problems, chronic infections or limited mobility and trauma. A highly skilled and specially trained team of doctors, nurses and technicians staff the Fisher-Titus Medical Center Wound Healing Institute. This team has advanced training and experience in healing difficult wounds.

The Goals of the Institute Include:

  • Healing your wound and keeping it healed
  • Increasing your comfort and mobility
  • Preventing infection
  • Preventing amputation
  • Helping you get your quality of life back
Types of Wounds Treated

Most wounds, minor cuts and scratches heal on their own within two weeks. Sometimes a wound stays open longer due to blood flow problems, infection, diabetes or poor nutrition. Not only do non-healing wounds cause pain and discomfort, they are often signs of larger and more complicated problems.

  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Arterial Ulcers
  • Venous Ulcers
  • Trauma
  • Cellulitis
  • Non-healing surgical wounds
  • Any wound that has not healed in one month
Treatment Methods

The Institute helps chronic wounds heal faster by treating the cause of the non-healing wound and applying evidence-based medical and surgical techniques that are outcome focused and cost-effective.

  • Negative Pressure
  • Wound Therapy
  • Bioengineered Tissue
