Wound Care



The Comprehensive Wound Center was developed in part by Dr. Gayle Gordillo:

  • To accelerate the translation of basic science findings to clinical application
  • To encourage novel partnerships and multidisciplinary approaches in order to investigate complex problems related to wound repair and regeneration
  • To use data to develop clinical best practices and become leaders in the field of tissue repair and wound management

The objectives and activities of the Comprehensive Wound Center adhere to NIH Roadmap guidelines. The Center was used as a focal point in the recently funded Clinical and Translational Science Award from NIH ($35,000,000), proposed by The Ohio State University.

The Inpatient Wound Consult Service was established and directed by Dr. Gayle Gordillo. This service provides expertise in the evaluation and management of inpatients with pressure ulcers, venous stasis ulcers or diabetic foot ulcers. The service sees about 200 patients per year.

The Hemangioma and Vascular Malformation Clinic at Nationwide Children’s Hospital was also established and is directed by Dr. Gayle Gordillo. This service provides comprehensive care to patients with hemangiomas and vascular malformations. The clinic is staffed by four physician providers, including a dermatologist and three plastic surgeons. The volume of patients seen has also doubled in size and exceeds 400+ patient visits per year.
