Take a Tour of The New Center For Wound Healing at Bayshore Community Hospital

Center boasts multi-disciplinary expertise and state of the art technology  

Holmdel, NJ - The Center for Wound Healing at Bayshore Community Hospital is proud to launch a video tour of the new Center, focusing on the many aspects of wound care available to the community. Asaad Samra, M.D., Medical Director of the Center for Wound Healing, guides viewers through the Center, providing a sneak peek of the facilities while also explaining the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) and the multiple forms of treatment that take place there.

The new Center opened in a larger, state of the art environment this past August which provides patients with more privacy and comfort than ever before.  The multi-disciplinary panel of physicians includes general surgery, vascular surgery, plastic surgery, and podiatry.

A chronic or non-healing wound is a sore or wound that has not healed from conventional treatments in three to four weeks, and if left untreated, can lead to serious health complications.

As November is Diabetes Awareness Month, the Center for Wound Healing reminds patients living with diabetes of the importance of foot care and staying safe by getting checked often.
