THE LIMB PRESERVATION PROGRAM at White Plains Hospital

The White Plains Hospital Limb Preservation Program, part of the Carl Weber, M.D. Wound Care Center, builds on a more than 25-year legacy of providing personalized, compassionate and comprehensive care to those with complex and non-healing wounds of the arms and legs.

Our goal is simple: to prevent limb loss using the latest advancements and technology so that patients can regain maximum mobility, return to work and activities, and maintain their quality of life. The Program is based in a new state-of-the-art setting on the 9th floor of the Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery on the White Plains Hospital campus.

In addition to Wound Care physicians, it is our dedicated team of multi-disciplinary specialists that sets the Limb Preservation Program at White Plains Hospital apart from others in the region.
