On November 27, the staff at Hillcrest Henryetta Wound Care Center are hosting a free foot screening open to the public. The event will take place at the Wound Care Center from noon to 2 p.m. Patients with diabetes, pre-diabetes or who are experiencing numbness or tingling in their feet are encouraged to attend.
In patients with diabetes, the natural healing process and pain reflexes can be disrupted. Poor circulation may develop in the legs and feet (peripheral arterial disease or PAD) or patients may have high blood sugar, or both, which slows down healing.
If a patient has nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy), feet may feel numb. Or they may have no feeling at all. In either case, the injury may be painless. When that happens, blisters, cuts, and sores can go unnoticed. A foot screening can help identify any wounds that are of concern.
Walk-in appointments WILL be accepted but scheduling an appointment by calling 877.295.2273 is encouraged. Appointments will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hillcrest Henryetta Wound Care Center provides a comprehensive approach to treating patients with non-healing wounds. The team features clinicians with advanced training in wound care.
Hillcrest Henryetta Wound Care Center is open every Monday. For more information about wound care or to schedule an appointment, call 877.295.2273. No referral is required.
