About Us

The Wound Institute of America was founded by Dr. Som Kohanzadeh and Dr. David Pougatsch, two prominent wound care specialists at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Sherman Oaks Wound Center, for the sole purpose of healing difficult wounds in the most painless, efficient manner. Our rate of healing is more than twice as fast as the national average.

Our wound care center is privileged to be involved in multiple clinical trials to develop the most advanced products on the market today. This advantage allows our patients to experience the newest technologies in wound healing that is unparalleled in Southern California.
