Wound Care Director

LOAN LAM, D.P.M., F.A.P.W.Hc, C.W.S.P., C.H.W.S.

Dr. Loan Lam is a highly trained, board-certified wound care and hyperbaric medicine physician as well as a podiatric surgeon. Dr. Lam is one of the few physicians certified in lymphedema management. Dr. Lam believes successful wound healing requires being a “detective” to put together all the pieces of a patient’s complex medical issues and address the underlying causes of impaired healing. She is trained in multiple advanced surgical and non-surgical techniques for wound healing including grafts, local flap closures, negative pressure therapy, hyperbaric oxygen treatments, and various compression and manual therapies. “My interest in lymphedema comes from seeing a significant number of wound and vascular patients with undiagnosed or undertreated chronic lymphedema which have adversely affected their quality of life,” says Dr. Lam.
