Shana Hilson, MSN, ACNP-BC, CWS

Shana Hilson is an acute care nurse practitioner at USA specializing in wound care. She currently sees patients at USA Surgical Specialties Building, USA Hixson, and USA Gunbarrel Rd. office.

Hilson is certified as a wound specialist by the American Board of Wound Management and  focuses her efforts on treating wounds associated with diabetes, peripheral artery disease, radiation necrosis and lymphedema.

“I’ve always had a particular interest in wound care and the ability to dramatically improve a patient’s life with proper treatment,” says Hilson. “Non-healing wounds can impact many areas of a person’s life – including their mental state and self-esteem. It’s very rewarding to help patients get back to an active and pain-free life.”
