Podiatrist Greg D. Clark, M.D. Joins Specialists Providing Care at the Center for Wound Healing at Ocean Medical Center

Greg Clark, DPM., a podiatrist who is board certified in podiatric surgery and reconstructive rearfoot and ankle surgery, has joined the physician panel at the Center for Wound Healing at Ocean Medical Center. He joins a diverse group of specialists who treat patients with hard-to-heal wounds.

Along with other specialists in vascular surgery, podiatry, general surgery and internal medicine, Dr. Clark provides wound care expertise at the center. Treatments include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure therapies, bioengineered tissues and biosynthetics to reintroduce the body's innate ability to heal.

Chronic wounds affect more than 8 million people in the U.S. and the incidence is rising, fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy.

"Dr. Clark's expertise and experience is a wonderful resource for the patients at our wound center," says Dean Q. Lin, FACHE, president of Ocean Medical Center. "There is a tremendous need in the community and we are here to help people regain quality of life by healing chronic wounds."

By joining the panel of medical experts at The Center for Wound Healing at Ocean Medical Center, a member of the HealogicsT network, Dr. Clark will collaborate with a network of academic medical centers, hospitals and thousands of professionals committed to advancing wound healing by creating, sharing, and activating wound prevention and care expertise.

Dr. Clark completed his medical residency at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and speaks English and Spanish. To learn more about services offered at the Center for Wound Healing at Ocean Medical Center, or for a wound evaluation, call 732-840-3399.
