Wound Healing Center at Missouri Baptist in St. Louis

The Wound Healing Center at Missouri Baptist uses an interdisciplinary model of care, including infectious-disease management, physical therapy, occupational therapy, laboratory evaluation, nutritional management, pain management, diabetic education, radiology testing, and debridement to address total patient health.

Offering state-of-the-art treatments, including debridement, dressing selection, special shoes, and patient education, people with non-healing and chronic wounds now have a place to turn. "Wounds are complex conditions and require a treatment plan tailored to each patient's specific needs," said Mark Ludwig, MD, medical director of the Missouri Baptist Wound Healing Center. Dr. Ludwig brings more than 30 years of experience as a surgeon and vascular specialist to the new center. "Our team uses proven, research-based approaches during each stage of the treatment process to improve the heal rate and reduce the timeline for recovery."
