Since 1992, The Wound Center at Clara Maass has remained dedicated to caring for people with wounds that resist healing. At The Wound Center, an experienced team of physicians (podiatrists, vascular surgeons, infectious disease specialists, and plastic surgeons) and nurses versed in all areas of wound care work together to manage the most complicated wounds and expedite the healing process.

Lifestyle, environment and nutritional status play an important role in the body’s ability to heal. Each patient undergoes an assessment based on these factors to determine a personalized plan of care. Individualized treatment plans encourage the healing process while allowing patients the comfort of healing at home. Treatments prescribed by The Wound Center are likely to cure the non-healing wound of the average patient in six-to-eight weeks.


The Wound Center uses the latest modalities and technologies to heal wounds. Human skin equivalents, growth factors, hydropolymers and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) are just some of the treatments used with success.

Human skin equivalents are made from harvested cells and applied directly to venous ulcers and non-healing diabetic ulcers. Growth Factor enhances the healing process in a chronic non-healing wound. HBOT provides systemic oxygen to the open wound at a very high pressure, furthering the body's ability to speed the healing process.

The Wound Center is located on the first floor of the Clara Maass Continuing Care Center. This setting provides patients with easy access to all the services of the hospital such as laboratory testing, radiological and imaging studies, and vascular studies, if needed.
