Prevent Complications

If you have a wound of any size that is slow to heal, you can contact the Comprehensive Wound Center for an appointment. It is better to receive treatment for a small wound than to wait until a more complex condition occurs that could lead to an amputation or life-altering situation.  This is especially true if you are in an "at risk" category -- have diabetes, heart condition, peripheral artery disease, smoke, or have experienced a previous slow-to-heal wound. Ohio State experts can help you prevent a more serious wound complication. A physician's referral is not needed.

Unique Limb Preservation Program

The Limb Preservation Program at Ohio State's Comprehensive Wound Center combines wound healing expertise and the most advanced techniques to avoid amputation and save limbs. A multidisciplinary team (experts in vascular medicine, podiatry,  and plastic and general surgery) will work with each patient to determine the cause of the condition that is threatening the limb and determine a course of healing treatment aimed at preserving that limb and preventing future complications.

Self-referrals Accepted

At Ohio State we work closely with primary care and referring physicians, keeping them informed of your healing progress. However, our services are also open to any individual who has a slow-healing wound; is at risk for wound complications; or who has been treated elsewhere and would like a second opinion or additional healing support. You can call our clinic directly at 614-293-4811 to make an appointment. Individuals, especially those at risk for wound healing problems, are encouraged to visit Ohio State’s Comprehensive Wound Center before serious complications arise.
