Diabetic Wound Prevention and Treatment
Nerve damage (neuropathy) and poor circulation are common conditions associated with diabetes. In some cases, these conditions can put diabetics at risk for developing hard-to-heal wounds on their legs and feet that can lead to infections and, in extreme cases, amputation. Through early detection and treatment, however, these wounds can often be healed without long-term complications.
Catholic Health is sponsoring a dinner program, “Diabetic Wound Prevention and Treatment” on Wednesday, June 5, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens, 6461 Transit Road, Depew.
Join wound care specialist, Jill Eysaman-Walker, DO, for dinner and a presentation on diabetic ulcers. She and a panel of wound experts, featuring Lee Ruotsi, MD; William Lagaly, DO; and Mary Ellen Fadel, NP, will provide information on diabetic wound care, including prevention techniques, early warning signs, and various treatment options, including hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
“Diabetic Wound Prevention and Treatment” is open to the public. Guests are invited to attend one free Catholic Health community program per calendar year. After that, the cost is $20 and includes a meal. Space is limited and reservations are required. For more information, call 716-447-6205 or visit chsbuffalo.org/events.
