Comprehensive Wound Center 

The Comprehensive Wound Center is now open at Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton. Located on the Campus of Baylor Carrollton, our Comprehensive Wound Center is dedicated to offering advanced treatment for chronic, non-healing wounds. We identify the specific causes of your wound condition and implement a treatment plan tailored to help you heal. Typically any wound present more than four weeks should be seen in an outpatient wound care setting.

One Call Does It All

If you have a non-healing wound, you do not need a doctor's written order or referral for treatment at our Comprehensive Wound Center. Just call 972.394.2336 to schedule an appointment.

The physicians on our medical staff have the expertise to understand and treat the varied circumstances and challenges of complex open wounds. Once your wound has healed, your primary care doctor will provide follow-up wound care and continued care for any related conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension.

The Comprehensive Wound Center at Baylor Carrollton is under the medical direction of Dr. Hardeep Rai who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and specializes in wound care and chronic disease management.
