A doctor at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage has successfully treated a Coachella Valley patient with a dangerous kind of necrotizing fasciitis, or “flesh-eating disease,” experts announced this week.

Dr. Anibal Gauto, medical director of inpatient wound care and founder of Eisenhower’s Wound Care Center, used a pioneering new treatment he has started to roll out in his practice over the past two years, NovaBay’s NeutroPhase Wound Cleanser. The hospital was only the second in the U.S. to use the cleanser.
