A new comprehensive Wound Care Center at Stony Brook Eastern Long Island Hospital (SBELIH) is now seeing patients — expanding outpatient wound care services to the North Fork and Shelter Island. This new care option is for patients with acute wound injuries as well as those with chronic or slow-healing wounds.  The center offers services previously requiring travel west of Riverhead. The Wound Care Center will offer new, innovative, cutting-edge wound care options. Patients will also have access to general surgery, podiatry, orthopaedics, and hand surgery expertise. The center will provide access to state-of-the-art equipment and new wound-healing technology, right here on the North Fork.

The Wound Care Center utilizes proven best practices to treat:

  • Acute injury follow-up care, including suture removal and evaluation for potential  healing issues
  • Diabetic foot wounds
  • Bone infections (osteomyelitis)
  • Wounds caused by poor circulation, including ulcers and sores on the feet or legs
  • Soft tissue injuries resulting from radiation treatment
  • Wounds from pressure injuries
  • Non-healing or slow healing post-surgical wounds and complication management
  • Compromised surgical flaps and grafts
