According to the old saying, “time heals all wounds.” But the truth is, without advanced therapies, some wounds can take years to heal. Some wounds do not respond to treatment and require amputation.
The clinical staff at the new Center for Wound Healing at Pottstown (Pa.) Memorial Medical Center is trained in the latest therapeutic methods in wound management. Patients are treated with state-of-the-art technology ranging from having their progress charted through digital photographs to, in some cases, being treated in one of the two hyperbaric oxygen chambers.
The center opened in December. Benjamin Eskra, MD and Dennis Montiero, MD, both plastic surgeons on staff at PMMC, have been named co-medical directors of the center.
