The Division of Wound Healing & Regenerative Medicine at Winthrop-University Hospital is a 24/7 program consisting of five full-time faculty members, two Hyperbaric and Undersea Medicine board-certified physicians, and a total of 76 dedicated staff (e.g., physicians, podiatrists, research fellows, nurses, physician assistants and a research coordinator). It has its own dedicated inpatient service, hyperbaric chambers operating seven days per week, and a fully functional wound center operating six days per week. Surgical treatment is predicated on defining the underlying pathology and microbiology, while designing a personalized regenerative medicine treatment for each patient.
Over 800 operations were completed by the division last year, and it has 7 IRB-approved human research studies that are currently fully operational. The regenerative medicine program has been established for the past 15 years and has received multiple NIH grants leading to a number of clinical innovations. The program maintains a national referral base and the hospital offers a robust, exciting educational atmosphere for general surgery residents and medical students; many from Winthrop-University Hospital’s affiliate, Stony Brook University School of Medicine.
We are currently recruiting one full-time surgeon interested in Wound Healing & Regenerative Medicine. The candidate must be a BC/BE general, plastic or vascular surgeon who desires to practice wound healing full time. The candidate will perform a variety of complex debridements in conjunction with the use of growth factors and cellular therapeutics. Faculty appointment will be at the assistant or associate professor level at the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, commensurate with experience.
All interested applicants meeting the necessary requirements should please forward their curriculum vitae to Julie DiGregorio, CCRP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
