Wound Care Program
Every year, chronic wounds affect the lives of five million Americans. These non-healing wounds can be caused by diabetes, poor circulation or other medical conditions. The Wound Care Program at Upstate University Hospital Community Campus understands that these wounds can be painful and can affect your quality of life. The center's specialized team of physicians and nurses is dedicated to treating non-healing wounds. They utilize a focused approach to wound care and develop individualized treatment plans designed specifically for each patient.
