Des Plaines, IL. (May 6, 2016) – Wayne C. Williamson, M.D., F.A.C.P, has joined the Presence Holy Family Medical Wound Care Center as Medical Director.
Dr. Williamson will lead a team of wound care specialists at the Center, which offers leading-edge treatments including hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure therapies, bioengineered tissues, and biosynthetics to reintroduce the body's innate ability to heal. Once a patient’s chronic wound is healed, he or she will return to their primary care physician to continue non-wound related care.
Dr. Williamson completed his residency at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL.
In joining the Presence Holy Family Medical Center, a member of the Healogics network, Dr. Williamson will collaborate with a network of academic medical centers, hospitals and thousands of professionals committed to advancing wound healing by creating, sharing, and activating wound prevention and care expertise.
Dr. Williamson is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, is certified in both Internal medicine and Geriatric medicine and has more than 30 years of clinical experience.
Chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people in the U.S. and the incidence is rising fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy.
