The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Wound Care Center (WCC) provides multidisciplinary diagnosis, treatment, education, and support to foster wound healing for thousands of patients each year.
Under the medical direction of Dennis P. Orgill, MD, PhD, a plastic surgeon, the Center’s team−featuring specialists in plastic surgery with an association of specialists in vascular surgery, orthopedics, dermatology, diabetes, infectious disease, nutrition, pain management, and podiatry – provides expert, compassionate, and comprehensive care for the full spectrum of typical and atypical wounds.
We regularly treat patients, surgically and non-surgically, with wounds resulting from diabetes, atherosclerosis, peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, radiation, venous stasis, trauma, surgery, and many other conditions that lead to difficult wound healing. These diverse, multidisciplinary capabilities are enhanced by our access to state-of-the-art wound care technology.
Our research is instrumental in providing the most advanced wound care possible for our patients. This includes ongoing clinical research – research involving the participation of our patients – conducted at the Center, as well as fundamental research provided by individual labs, including the Tissue Engineering and Wound Healing lab of Dennis Orgill, MD, and the Tissue Repair and Gene Therapy lab of Elof Eriksson, MD.
