Scientific advances in wound care have created a new generation of cell–based, bioengineered skin substitutes. This is proving more effective in wound healing than previous technologies.

The wound care specialists of the Houston Methodist Willowbrook Advanced Wound Care Clinic provide the latest in bioengineered skin substitutes in the repair of non–healing diabetic, venous, pressure and surgical wounds, as well as burns and trauma wounds.

The cell–based therapies are showing in scientific studies to accelerate wound repair. This means fewer treatments, and more rapid healing. This reduces stress to the patient and overall wound care costs.

The bioengineered skin substitutes are part of a comprehensive, wound care approach to non-healing, chronic wounds. A team of wound care specialists work with collaborating physicians on the Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital campus.

The state-of-the-art facility features the latest technology in chronic wound care, including Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), specialized wound dressings and compression wraps.

The wound care specialists of The Advanced Wound Care Clinic at Houston Methodist Willowbrook work to heal wounds from the inside out for sustained results and overall well–being.
