Wound Care

Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive, state-of-the-art wound care treatment and therapy for patients with simple, acute, chronic nonhealing and complex wounds.

Plastic and reconstructive surgeons are also available to assess the wound for surgical intervention, if needed.

The Wound Care team specializes in the treatment of the following wound types:

  • Arterial and venous wounds
