A worldwide diabetic foot program to support
clinicians and patients to
close wounds, save feet and save lives
A long-term commitment for Urgo Medical
To fulfill its mission as The Healing Company, Urgo Medical has made diabetic foot ulcer a key priority, with the aim to close wounds, save feet and save lives for patients with diabetes and eradicate amputations and death as a consequence of diabetic foot.
Over the past few years, by partnering with internationally and locally recognized scientific societies and diabetic foot specialists, we have developed a deep understanding of the complexity of diabetic foot ulcer care.
We know that prevention is always the best care. But, unfortunately, it is sometimes not enough. When there is a wound, it needs to be treated as soon as possible and with the best treatment and protocol of care. This is why, as a testimony to our long-term commitment to patients suffering from diabetic foot, we have built this program to address the three main challenges of diabetic foot management:
Organize care to optimize the patient pathway and build integrated care
- Build expert multi-disciplinary teams
- Build integrated care
- Improve referral
