With life-threatening chronic wounds on the rise[1], there is a greater need for a cohesive approach to healing in a timely and cost-effective manner. Wound healing centers often collaborate across multiple specialties in an effort to reduce the risk of complications and amputations. The staff at Beverly Hospital’s Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine includes clinicians with advanced training who are the cornerstones in the treatment of patients with problem wounds.

Our staff focuses on “continuity of care,” meaning that a patient will be seen and treated by the same team at each visit. They are dedicated to creating a cohesive plan for treatment and maintaining consistent communication to best meet the patient’s needs. This makes the healing process less stressful on the patient and encourages better outcomes.

“Our team is the most important element in the successful healing of the patient,” said Dr. Charles Ananian, DPM and Co-Medical Director of the Wound Care Center, “Each of us has the required knowledge, skills, experience, and drive to provide compassionate and comprehensive care for complex wounds.”

The Center for Advanced Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine is staffed by:

  • Babak Dadvand, MD, Medical Director, Plastic Surgery
  • Charles Ananian, DPM, Co-Medical Director, Podiatry
  • Mohammad Chaudhry, MD, Internal Medicine
  • Tim Neavin, MD, Plastic Surgery
  • Jacob Jensen, DPM, Podiatry
  • Ara Kelekian, DPM, Podiatry
  • Stacy Valdez, DPM, Podiatry

The wound care center’s team is here and ready to treat all wounds. Their approach to wound care is assertive and comprehensive, yet caring and comforting. The center coordinates traditional and advanced therapies, such as hyperbaric medicine, that aid and accelerate the healing process. We want to provide patients faster healing times, longer-lasting results, decreased amputation rates and increased mobility so they may have a better quality of life.

The types of wounds treated include:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Venous ulcers
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Surgical wounds
  • Traumatic wounds
  • Arterial ulcers
  • Radiation wounds
  • Compromised skin grafts and flaps
