Wound Care

At MUSC Health - Wound Care, our highly-trained doctors, specialty nurses, and staff have expertise in diagnosing complex and chronic wounds and offer the most advanced wound care treatments for adult and pediatric patients. We identify the best treatment plan to improve blood flow, prevent infection, help your body to heal, and work to prevent amputations.

Our goal is to heal your wound faster. We work with specialty wound care pharmacies, home health, and insurance so that each patient has the resources needed to heal.
