Chronic Wound

If you or someone you care for is suffering with a wound that won't heal, also known as a chronic wound, turn to the experts within Jefferson's Wound Care Program and the Vascular Center.

A chronic wound is defined as a wound that has not shown significant healing in four weeks, or has not completely healed in eight weeks. These wounds can result from trauma to the area, diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, complications following surgery, and other conditions whereby your circulation system has been compromised.

With locations at both our Center City campus and at Methodist Hospital in South Philadelphia, Jefferson's Wound Care Program was established to provide anyone suffering with chronic wound care access to expert wound care from qualified specialists at a specially equipped facility.

Our specialists will not only treat your wounds but also identify and address factors impeding wound healing, which is crucial to achieving positive results. Your referring physician will be kept informed about your care throughout the treatment process, which can take several weeks.

The Jefferson Vascular Center, located in Center City Philadelphia, South Philadelphia and South Jersey, is equipped with state-of-the-art features such as a vascular diagnostic lab, endovascular suites for routine and complex interventional procedures and two dedicated hyperbaric oxygen chambers for wound care.
