The term “flesh-eating” disease (necrotizing fasciitis) is a scary and often misunderstood term. Read Dr. Bruce Ruben’s article here to understand this disease and to set the facts straight.
Owning Diabetic Foot Ulcers
We own diabetic foot ulcers like Lebron James owns anyone who covers him on the basketball court. We have advanced knowledge of the game. We possess the mechanics. We’ve trained all our lives to produce at the highest levels of wound care. We’re driven to beat this insidious disease.
We own diabetic foot ulcers. There’s no foot ulcer that we haven’t been able to cure thus far. That’s because sometimes the ulcer has little to do with the bandage that’s put on it and more to do with the malady underneath it. That’s right….wound medicine goes a lot deeper than fancy bandaging. It goes into usual unchartered territories like infection, edema, poor nutrition (or just not enough protein,) poor circulation, and repetitive trauma.
So the next time you hear about Encompass Healthcare‘s ability to heal a diabetic foot ulcer, think of our little “logo” guy on 6’8″ stilts, wearing the finest basketball court shoes money can buy.
