Genesis Wound Care Center Participates in National Diabetes Campaign

The Genesis Wound Care Center®, a member of the Healogics network, will participate in the Healogics National Diabetes Campaign from Oct. 27 to Oct. 31. One of nearly 600 Healogics-managed centers, the Genesis Wound Care Center offers advanced therapies to patients suffering from chronic wounds like diabetic foot ulcers. Program directors across the nation will visit local physicians’ offices to provide education to help staff identify diabetic patients with or at risk of having ulcers of the lower extremity.

“In diabetes, early recognition and treatment of foot and lower leg wounds from any cause is absolutely critical. Advanced aggressive wound care can substantially reduce serious complications in diabetic patients,” said Charles Feicht, D.O., CWSP, medical co-director of the Genesis Wound Care Center. “People with diabetes should check their legs and feet daily for any wounds and not delay seeking early evaluation and treatment.”

David Skrobot, D.P.M., FACFAS, CWS, medical co-director of the Genesis Wound Care Center added, “Foot ulcers in patients with diabetes contribute to more than 60 percent of lower extremity amputations in the United States in an at-risk group that represents only 8 percent of the population. The Genesis Wound Care Center has a thorough approach to evaluating and managing these difficult diabetic foot wounds.”
