i know of a resident who is doing this at my wife's hospital..anyone?...

is this affiliated with the vascular surgery division? the only docs I know that concentrate on wound care (though not by way of a 'wound care fellowship' are in vascular.

it's actualy pretty smart... wound care specialists are often in demand by home care agencies (i.e. visiting nurse services) -- nurse goes in, takes pictures of the wound, beams them to the wound care specialist who makes a recommendation...nurse contacts the PMD with the specialist rec...PMD says "sounds good" and the wounds get better-> nurse signs off the case.

other business targets:
elderly are living longer, everyone stroking or goming out -> nursing home -> nursing shortage -> decubitus ulcers -> business

obesity -> diabetes (poorly controlled) -> ulcers -> business



decubiti....yuck.
