Dr. Lisa Derr Named Medical Director of the Jefferson Health Center for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen in Cherry Hill
Dr. Lisa Derr has been named medical director of the Jefferson Health Center for Advanced Wound Care and Hyperbaric Oxygen in Cherry Hill. Chronic wounds affect 6.7 million people in the U.S., and the incidence is rising fueled by an aging population and increasing rates of medical conditions, such as diabetes, obesity and the late effects of radiation therapy. In her new role, Dr. Derr provides clinical leadership and care, along with a team of wound care specialists at the center, which offers leading-edge treatments for non-healing wounds, including: hyperbaric oxygen therapy, negative pressure therapies, bioengineered tissues, and biosynthetics. Once a patient’s chronic wound is healed, they are returned to their primary care physician to continue non-wound-related care. Dr. Derr joins the Jefferson Cherry Hill Wound Center, which opened in Spring 2018, from the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine at Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth, NJ.
