WOUND CARE MANAGEMENT NOW AVAILABLE AT ST. ANTHONY COMMUNITY HOSPITAL
Byoung Yang, MD, System Medical Director for Bon Secours Charity Wound and HBOT program will provide service to the local area
WARWICK – (September 11) Millions of Americans suffer from chronic open sores that can become seriously infected, gangrenous and in some cases require amputation. This is often due to limited blood flow, which can slow the body’s own, healing process.
Byoung Yang, MD, System Medical Director for Bon Secours Charity Wound and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) program will now provide service to the community for Wound Care Management at St. Anthony Community Hospital in Warwick, NY.
Dr. Yang was board-certified in hyperbaric medicine, which includes comprehensive wound management, after completing a hyperbaric fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. He received residency training at a large wound care center in Mt. Vernon, New York, under the direction of the late, renowned wound treatment physician, Dr. Jorge Beale. Dr. Yang is also board-certified in Internal Medicine.
In his current position at St. Anthony Community Hospital, Dr. Yang seeks to develop a safe and seamless approach to wound care that begins when the patient is admitted to the hospital and continues until the patient is discharged to the home, nursing home or rehabilitation facility and the wound is completely healed. His expertise includes treating complicated wounds such as venous insufficiency, arterial insufficiency, leg wounds, delayed healing surgical wounds, complications from radiation treatment, and decubitus ulcers (bed sores).
“Since a wound is a manifestation of a systemic illness,” he said, “the physician must treat the patient as a whole rather than just the wound.”
