Welcome to Wound and Burn Centers of America, where healing humankind one wound at a time is more than a motto—it’s our unwavering mission. Led by renowned physician and wound healing specialist Dr. Hajhosseini, we offer cutting-edge adjunctive therapies, from negative pressure wound therapy to electromagnetic energy, revolutionizing wound care and transforming lives.

Specialized Wound Dressings

Specialized wound dressings are crucial components in the field of wound care. They are designed to promote healing and provide optimal conditions for the recovery process. Wound and Burn Centers of America offers numerous types of specialized wound dressings, including transparent films, hydrogels and hydrocolloids, alginates, and foams. These dressings cater to specific wound characteristics, ensuring personalized and effective wound care strategies.

Transparent Films

Transparent films serve as a protective barrier for wounds. Impermeable to contaminants, they allow water vapor to cross through their semi-permeable barrier. These films do not absorb exudates, making them particularly useful for wounds that do not exude excessive fluids. By creating a sealed environment, transparent films promote optimal healing conditions while providing visibility for wound assessment without dressing changes.

Hydrogels and Hydrocolloids

Hydrogels and hydrocolloids are specialized wound dressings that manage dry or minimally-exuding wounds. Hydrogels provide a moist environment that promotes autolytic debridement and helps facilitate healing. Hydrocolloids, on the other hand, absorb exudate while forming a gel-like barrier that protects the wound bed. These dressings are versatile and effective in promoting the recovery of various types of wounds.


Alginates are highly absorbent wound dressings commonly used for highly-exuding wounds. Made from seaweed extracts, they form a gel-like consistency upon contact with wound exudate, providing a moist environment for healing. Alginates not only absorb excess moisture but also help fill dead spaces in deeper wounds, promoting wound bed protection and the formation of healthy granulation tissue. Alginates play a vital role in effective, comprehensive wound management.


Used in highly-exuding wounds, foams are designed to absorb and manage excess moisture while maintaining a moist environment conducive to healing. By effectively absorbing fluids and providing a protective barrier, foams promote optimal wound healing conditions. Additionally, they can be used as a preventive dressing over intact dry skin. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, foams are integral to comprehensive wound care strategies.

Negative Pressure Wound Therapy

Negative pressure wound therapy, also known as vacuum-assisted closure (Wound V.A.C.), is an advanced treatment modality. This therapy enhances wound healing by promoting angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), reducing swelling and excessive fluids, decreasing microbial burden, and stimulating the formation of granulation tissue (new connective tissue, which consists of microscopic new blood vessels). Applying negative pressure to the wound bed creates an optimal environment for healing, accelerating the recovery process for complex wounds and burns.

Compression Therapy

Compression therapy is a widely used treatment that involves applying pressure to the affected area using specialized bandages or stockings. Compression therapy aims to increase venous blood return, prevent blood pooling, decrease swelling (edema), and improve overall circulation. It is commonly employed in managing conditions such as venous insufficiency ulcers and lymphedema, playing a vital role in promoting healing and managing related symptoms.

Multi-layer compression wrap bandage systems and stockings are types of compression therapy used for venous insufficiency ulcers and lymphedema. These therapeutic tools apply graduated pressure to the affected area, effectively increasing venous blood return, preventing blood pooling, reducing edema, and improving overall circulation. They offer targeted compression for optimal wound healing and symptom management.

Custom pressure garments are specialized garments designed to provide controlled pressure to specific areas of the body. These garments are tailor-made to fit the patient’s unique needs and can be worn over scars to aid in prevention and management. By applying consistent pressure, custom pressure garments help flatten and soften scars, improve scar elasticity, and promote a more cosmetically pleasing appearance.

Electromagnetic Energy

Electromagnetic energy refers to using electric currents to stimulate healing processes in the body. It involves applying specific frequencies or wavelengths of energy to targeted areas. Electromagnetic energy has been shown to promote the migration and proliferation of fibroblasts, which are essential for wound healing. It also stimulates blood flow by promoting the production of nitric oxide and can aid in muscle activation. Electrical stimulation-induced activation of paralyzed muscles may heal pressure injuries in patients with spinal cord injuries.

Acoustic Energy

Acoustic energy refers to using high and low-frequency therapeutic ultrasound to deliver mechanical vibrations for therapeutic purposes. This energy is applied to the body’s tissues to facilitate healing at a cellular level. Acoustic energy has been found to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue regeneration. By delivering focused sound waves, it can target specific areas and stimulate the healing process. We use acoustic energy as a valuable tool to enhance wound healing and optimize patient outcomes.
