Maryland Wound Healing Center
There are many types of wounds that can damage the skin including abrasions, lacerations, rupture injuries, punctures, and penetrating wounds.
Many wounds are minor and require only local first aid that includes cleansing and dressing. Some wounds, however, are deeper and need medical attention to prevent infection and loss of function due to damage to underlying structures like bone, muscle, tendon, arteries and nerves.
Wounds that do not heal in two to three weeks often have underlying medical conditions that if left untreated could cause serious, even permanent damage. These types of wounds require specialized care from the Maryland Wound Healing Center. The Maryland Wound Healing Center is a state-of-the-art, hospital-based, outpatient center specializing in the treatment of chronic wounds that have not responded to previous therapies. The Center is well equipped with four treatment rooms, two mono-place hyperbaric oxygen chambers and the newly expanded vascular lab.
