Let the Healing Begin...

For wounds that just won’t heal, there is help and hope.

The Wound Care Center by Des Peres Hospital treats patients with chronic or non-healing wounds associated with, among other things, diabetes, pressure ulcers, trauma and peripheral vascular disease.  Chronic wounds are those wounds that have not shown significant improvement with conventional treatment within 30 days or complete healing in eight weeks.

The Wound Care Center by Des Peres Hospital has a program  designed just for you.  Problematic and slow-to-heal wounds are treated using advanced, comprehensive, researched-based therapies in a comfortable outpatient setting.

Our team of friendly, specially trained doctors and nurses take a personalized approach to medical and surgical care using some of the most advanced wound care technologies available.

Our interdisciplinary care includes infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address your total health.  In addition, we use hyperbaric oxygen therapy to reduce swelling, fight  infection, and build new blood vessels, ultimately producing healthy tissue.

Most wounds are completely healed within 8 weeks.
