Marc Blatstein was born in Philadelphia, PA. He went to Undergraduate College at George Washington University in Washington DC where he earned a BA in Psychology, all the time working to help with the high costs of a college education. This was followed with medical training at the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine, where Marc Blatstein obtained a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine Degree. While he was here, he also worked to help with the costs of an education. Marc had a surgical residency in Podiatric Medicine, which followed by a 22 year career as a single practitioner. While in practice he incorporated a medically oriented shoe store, wound care and physical therapy. A major part of Marc Blatstein’s practice is the use of The Circulator Boot™ as a method of treatment that supports the core elements of wound therapy: increased blood supply, bacterial control, moisture and debridement. Along with other modes of treatment, surgical debridement of infected wounds, the use of antibiotic medications, along with home care, boot therapy may improve the blood supply and control the infection in necrotizing cellulitis when standard methods of treatment are failing.
