Wound Care

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 wound care technology.
