WHAT IS DMPREVENT?
A Comprehensive Approach
DMPrevent is a world-class diabetic wound care service that combines wound-care treatment centers, diabetic health education and state-of-the-art telehealth technology pushing diagnostic information directly to a patient’s primary care physician or endocrinologist.
The goal of DMPrevent is to reduce the need for amputations by early detection and prevention of wounds with care delivered by world-class board-certified physicians and medical professionals who are acknowledged pioneers and leading experts in their respective fields.
As part of the DMPrevent approach, our specialized team offers extensive treatment options that focus on rapid healing while addressing the underlying causes of chronic and hard-to-heal wounds.
DMPrevent is committed to providing state-of-the-art preventive wound care through a comprehensive program that will enable us to detect and intervene in the progression of devastating disease states.
A diabetic ulcer or wound is a serious condition that without proper treatment, can lead to amputation. Our mission is to meet the full spectrum of patient needs through medical interventions related to the early detection, treatment and monitoring of the complications of diabetes. By partnering with physicians, we can develop scalable protocols to address the urgent needs of the growing population in emerging markets around the world impacted by diabetes.

It's about treating the disease, not managing it. DMPrevent addresses the root case of the patient's diabetes. Our goal is not only to heal diabetic foot ulcers, but to get our patients completely off their medications.
The Diabetes Landscape
With the worldwide prevalence of diabetes exceeding 400 million cases and predicted to rise to more than 500 million by 2025, new strategies for awareness, intervention and treatment are critical. In any diabetic population, 25% will have a foot ulcer and are at risk for amputation. This global health crisis is especially pressing in the Middle East. Health authorities in the UAE have long been concerned by the country’s high incidence of diabetes, currently the 16th highest in the world according to the World Health Organization. Trends identified in 2015 also indicate that the prevalence of diabetes in the UAE is rising at a faster rate than both the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) and the rest of the world. Projections indicate that the Middle East, along with Southeast Asia, is set for a massive 263% increase in the incidence of diabetes by 2030 — a larger jump than any other region.
