The newly established Stony Brook Wound Center — located in East Setauket, NY — is dedicated to providing the best wound care to patients with chronic non-healing wounds.
Our multidisciplinary team brings together experts from different specialties to provide comprehensive wound care.
Our treatment plans are custom-designed for each individual to successfully advance the healing process.
Any wound that doesn't show improvement in four weeks or is not healed within eight weeks is considered a chronic non-healing wound.
The Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC) issued its formal "Statement on Comprehensive, Multidisciplinary Wound Care" to stress the following points:
- The nature of the chronic wound demands comprehensive, multidisciplinary care in order for patients to receive the best wound care.
- The wound care literature abounds with research describing improved quantitative outcomes resulting from comprehensive, multidisciplinary care.
- Substantial qualitative research studies demonstrate positive outcomes and the value of comprehensive, multidisciplinary wound care.
Our multidisciplinary team of wound care specialists at the Stony Brook Wound Center combines the expertise of different medical and surgical specialties that include:
- Plastic Surgery
- Internal Medicine
- Infectious Disease
Our physicians provide technically advanced, surgical, and non-surgical outpatient care that is highly effective in healing wounds that resist conventional therapy.
Antonios P. Gasparis, MD, associate professor of surgery and director of the Wound Center, says:
We provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary wound care with a wide range of treatment options. Treatments range from Unna-boots to recombinant DNA growth factor and cultured skin substitute. Our comprehensive approach can heal wounds that have resisted other treatments, reduce incidence of recurrence, and help avoid loss of limbs.
The Stony Brook Wound Center treats different types of chronic non-healing wounds, including:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Venous stasis ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Wounds caused by peripheral vascular and collagen vascular disease
- Surgical wounds
- Trauma wounds
- Burn wounds
As part of the region's only academic medical center, the Stony Brook Wound Center is involved in several clinical trials that enable us to use, in addition to established therapies, the newest and most advanced technologies and treatments — long before they are available to other physicians.
Our unique wide range of treatment options, together with our multidisciplinary team approach, thus distinguishes the care we provide at Stony Brook.
