The WVU Medicine Center for Advanced Wound Healing at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown offers comprehensive and advanced solutions for patients of all ages with problem wounds.
We’re dedicated to healing chronic wounds, preventing lower limb loss, and optimizing outcomes for our patients. If you or a loved one has a wound that is of concern or is not healing properly, you may have what is referred to as a complex or non-healing wound.
Often complicated by underlying conditions, such as diabetes, circulation problems, or previous radiation treatment, the simplest of wounds can turn into a significant problem when the body’s normal healing process is affected.
Other types of hard-to-heal wounds result from pressure, trauma, or infection. Complex wounds can have serious health consequences and may adversely affect your quality of life.

• Venous ulcers

What is a Comprehensive Wound Healing Center?
The WVU Medicine Center for Advanced Wound Healing provides care to those suffering from chronic wounds in a way no other provider can – all in one location. A comprehensive Wound Healing Center is a coordinated outpatient center that utilizes the latest techniques and procedures to provide the best chance of healing.
The patient experience includes a detailed history and assessment, individualized treatment plan, and coordination of care with appropriate services and specialties. In addition, patient care is multi-disciplinary, with input from board-certified specialists, including vascular, infectious disease, general surgery, plastic surgery, and podiatry providers. We also work with the patient’s primary care physician, making communication a top priority.
