Nearly five million Americans suffer from wounds that haven’t healed by conventional methods within 30 days. Diabetic lower extremity wounds, arterial or vascular wounds, pressure ulcers, bone infections and compromised skin grafts are just of a few of the hard-to-heal type of wounds we routinely encounter.

Every wound is unique, and the Wound Healing Center at Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital is equipped and staffed to treat wounds using clinically proven treatment methods. Our center has a full staff of wound healing specialists, including medical doctors, general surgeons, podiatrists, infectious disease consulting specialists and nurse practitioners who have achieved remarkable success and healing rates.
