New Wound Care NOW OPEN.
Schuyler Hospital through its affiliation with Cayuga Medical, the Cayuga Health System,
has opened a Wound Center at the hospital. With one of the most advanced wound centers in the region the Cayuga Center for Wound Healing offers highly
specialized treatments of chronic wounds and non-responsive conditions. Wounds that do not heal in 30 days often have underlying medical conditions that
require additional attention. The increase in diabetes, vascular disease, and an aging population are placing more demand in communities for wound treatment
Under the direction of Dr. James Winkler, The Wound Center is seeing patients in the Orthopedics and General Surgery Clinics in
the Hospital on Mondays. Appointments should be made through the Cayuga Wound Center at (607 274-4203).
