Division of Wound Healing & Regenerative Medicine

Faculty in the Division of Wound Healing and Regenerative Medicine at NYU Long Island School of Medicine specialize in wound-healing care, using leading-edge treatment technologies, including biologics, stem cells, and hyperbaric oxygen, to deliver the most advanced care to patients.

Our doctors are dedicated to healing wounds, preventing limb loss, and treating underlying conditions. They offer treatment based on biological analysis of wound tissue, providing advanced surgical and nonsurgical options.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we treated patients with acute COVID-19 using hyperbaric oxygen, with the results of our work published in the peer-reviewed Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society Journal. We continue to advance our ability to provide excellent care and are a clinical site for a multicenter randomized clinical trial using hyperbaric oxygen to treat acute COVID-19 respiratory illness in hospitalized patients.

Wound Healing and Regenerative Medicine Education

The General Surgery Residency is a major academic responsibility of our division. Accredited by the Accrediting Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), it offers world-class training in a range of surgical subspecialties, including wound care.

Progressive responsibility is the key element of the residency program. Surgical and medical decision-making are taught in clinical and didactic settings. The wound healing and regenerative medicine team provide instruction in how to treat chronic advanced wounds, with an emphasis on evidence-based decision-making and the pursuit of new knowledge through clinical studies and in the laboratory.

Wound Healing and Regenerative Medicine Research

The wound healing research program at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island is dedicated to bringing the latest advances in wound-healing technologies to patients with all types of chronic and difficult-to-heal wounds. The research program’s multidisciplinary team of clinicians and researchers combines broad clinical, basic science, and engineering expertise across the spectrum from discovery of healing mechanisms to invention of new technologies and clinical trials of innovative therapies.

We hold weekly conferences to advance the understanding of patient care, difficult cases, and wound pathology, and to review ongoing clinical trials and develop new studies. Our ongoing industry- and government-sponsored and investigator-initiated clinical trials offer patients an opportunity to receive advanced therapies for their wounds and participate in the advancement of knowledge of best practices in wound care.

Wound Healing and Regenerative Medicine Clinical Services

Our teams at NYU Langone Hyperbaric and Wound Care Associates—Mineola and NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island treat patients with wounds caused by complications of diabetes, chronic osteomyelitis, late effects of radiation, and others. NYU Langone Hyperbaric and Wound Care Associates—Mineola is accredited with distinction by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.
