Our Leadership Team

Haresh Kane, M.D., CWSP

Founder and CEO

Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, Dr. Kane has always cherished a challenge. This led him to pursue his medical degree in Hungary where he graduated Cum Laude in 2003. To this day, he remains fluent in Hungarian and often cites that experience as a defining moment in his life. Yearning to pursue his education further, he then trained and completed an Internal Medicine residency program at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, a teaching institution which was, at the time, affiliated with Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. However, his true passion was wound care and decided to pursue an unconventional career path which has now culminated into a medical practice that spans multiple states. Dr. Kane is Board Certified and a Diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine. He also maintains certification with the American Board of Wound Management where he holds the coveted designation of CWSP (Certified Wound Specialist Physician).

 

With the goal of disrupting the current wound care delivery model of healthcare, along with the beliefs that every patient is entitled to high quality wound care and that the clinician is the one who should travel to the patient, not the other way around, Dr. Kane founded Kane Wound Care, formerly Princeton Wound Care, to deliver bedside wound care. Since then, he has grown the company to become one of the largest wound care provider groups in New Jersey, servicing nursing homes, assisted living facilities, independent living facilities and, of course, patients needing home wound care. Dr. Kane believes there are three absolute tenets to great care and requests that all of his wound care providers show the same: Always be happy, always be humble and always be honest.
