Drs Ford & Towarnicki adding services at New Wound Healing Center

A new Wound Care Center is now open at Jewish Hospital,  offering patients a comprehensive quality approach to wound healing and  providing state-of-the-art clinical services to our fastest-growing  medical demographic:patients with diabetes aged 40 years and older. Dr. Timothy Ford is the Medical Director of the Wound Care Center with Dr Jonathan Towarnicki adding his wound care expertise to the Center. The Wound Healing Center @ Jewish Hospital provides a multidisciplinary approach wot wounds with specialists in vascular, plastic and foot & ankle surgery as well and infectious disease. 

The Wound Care Center treats patients with non-healing wounds that  require an advanced level of care. Wounds typically treated at the  center include those that are chronic and especially difficult to heal,  such as diabetic, venous and pressure ulcers. Internal injuries may also  benefit from treatment at the center, including the late effects of  radiation, osteomyelitis and crush injuries. Patient progress reports  are provided on a regular basis and upon completion of treatment, the  patient is discharged back to the referring physician.

 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) is also available at the center as a  proven, Medicare-approved treatment to advance our program’s wound  healing capability. HBO has been proven to accelerate wound healing in  patients with diagnoses including: diabetic, venous, pressure and  arterial ulcers; post-surgical flaps or grafts, surgical and trauma  wounds, crush injuries and other non-healing wounds. 

 

The Wound Care Center is located on the sixth floor at Jewish  Hospital Rudd Heart and Lung Buliding. Appointments may be made by calling 502.561.3918 or faxing a   referral form to 502.587.4066.
