Patient-Focused, Evidence-Based Wound Care
Complex and nonhealing wounds can negatively affect patients’ quality of life and disrupt daily activities. Not only are they painful – they can be extremely dangerous. Whether a wound is the result of radiation, traumatic injury, infection, disease (such as diabetes), or another condition, it requires timely and effective care, particularly when amputation is a possibility.
The specialists at UT Southwestern’s Wound Care Clinic are internationally recognized leaders at the forefront of an organization that sets the standards for wound care. Our experts have published more than 500 medical publications and have received every major award in wound healing.
Our team is actively engaged in discoveries to expand effective treatment solutions and provide the best possible care to all patients. Many of the latest options to heal wounds are available only at UT Southwestern.
Our multidisciplinary team includes experts in physical medicine, podiatric surgery, vascular surgery, and plastic surgery. We use the newest technologies and therapies available – some of which were evaluated and introduced by our very own physicians – to heal wounds, salvage limbs, improve function, and reduce scarring. We also have prosthetists and orthotists who can provide solutions in custom prosthetics, braces, inserts, and shoes to prevent wound formation and recurrence.
