Washington Township, NJ -- Brian Smeal, MD, has joined The Center for Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Kennedy as Medical Director.
Dr. Smeal leads a team of wound care specialists at Kennedy’s Washington Township, NJ-based 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, they are returned to their primary care physician to continue non-wound-related care.
A Fellow of the College of Certified Wound Specialists and the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Smeal is also a member of the American College of Hyperbaric Medicine, the Undersea & Hyperbaric Medicine Society and the American Society of Breast Cancer Surgeons. Dr. Smeal is a 23-year resident of Mullica Hill, NJ, where he resides with his family.
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.
The Center for Advanced Wound Care & Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at Kennedy is located behind Kennedy University Hospital in Washington Township, just off Egg Harbor Road. The Center cares for patients suffering from chronic wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation, prior radiation treatments, vascular disease or any number of other conditions. This convenient outpatient treatment facility provides comprehensive treatment for non-healing wounds—meaning a wound or sore that hasn’t significantly improved in a month, or completely healed in two months.
