At the Advocate South Suburban Hospital Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Center, the care team consists of highly skilled doctors and nurses trained in the most technologically advanced wound care therapy.

- Diabetic educator
The Wound Care Center is led by Dr. David A. Dreyfuss, M.D., Plastic Surgery, a board-certified doctor on staff at Advocate South Suburban Hospital. As Medical Director of the Wound Care Center, Dr. Dreyfuss oversees a team of doctors and nurses who have specific training for the treatments of non-healing wounds.
