University of Pittsburgh Medical Center opened a new wound care center in McKeesport, Pa., with the goal of providing better access to treatment and reducing patients' risk of amputation, says program director Arthur Fine. Specialists at the center offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure wound therapy, bioengineered tissues, and medical and surgical interventions. The wound care team includes general surgeons, podiatrists, a plastic surgeon and a vascular surgeon.
