Vohra Physicians, founded in 2000, is the largest wound care specialty group focused on the post-acute market. We use leading-edge technologies to enable our mission of bringing improved wound healing to patients across the U.S., and beyond.

Our history begins with a single physician, Dr. Ameet Vohra, who recognized that the prevalent wound care models were under-serving the 2% of US patients with chronic wounds. He developed a better approach, training physicians to be wound care specialists. Our physicians treat patients where they are, in Skilled Nursing Facilities, Assisted Living Facilities, and Long Term Acute Care Hospitals. Today, Vohra has 300 physician wound care specialists across 30 states treating thousands of patients daily. Supported by proprietary technologies and on-going specialist training, our model delivers proven better results, including a 21-day improvement in healing time, and an 88% reduction in wound-related hospitalizations.
