Fauquier Health physicians, leaders, and clinicians gathered recently to celebrate the Robert A. Warriner III, M.D., Center of Excellence award.
The Fauquier Health Wound Healing Center has achieved patient satisfaction rates higher than 92 percent and a healing rate of at least 91 percent in less than 30 median days to heal, for a minimum of two consecutive years.
The center was awarded this prestigious honor by Healogics, the nation’s largest provider of advanced wound care services. Of 700 Healogics managed centers, only 268 were honored with this award.
The award is named for Dr. Robert A. Warriner III, a pioneer in wound care and the former CEO for Healogics. The Fauquier Health Wound Healing Center is a member of the Healogics network.
The center offers highly specialized wound care to patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, pressure ulcers, infections and other chronic wounds which have not healed in a reasonable amount of time.
Advanced treatments include negative pressure wound therapy, bio-engineered skin substitutes, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, biological and biosynthetic dressings and growth factor therapies.
General surgeon Dr. Joe Brown will be joining the Wound Healing Center’s physician panel beginning June 15. He’ll be joining the current physician panel which includes Dr. Tam Ly, Dr. Joseph David, Dr. Lynn Samuel, Dr. Jorge Minera and Dr. Jeffrey Abrams.
Board certified in general surgery, Dr. Brown specializes in minimally invasive laparoscopic techniques. Dr. Brown also has a clinical interest in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of breast disease and hernia repair. As a general surgeon, Dr. Brown will bring a unique skill set to the panel.
The Wound Healing Center focuses on aggressive treatment of chronic wounds using advanced treatment modalities. Referrals are now being accepted to schedule with Dr. Brown.
