With up to a third of individuals suffering from diabetes (or pre-diabetes), wounds and ulcers are becoming more common all the time in the foot and ankle area. Due to the immunocompromised state of diabetics, it can be extremely difficult for the human body to naturally heal these wounds. Sometimes, they persist for years, become infected, and may lead to an eventual need for an amputation.
At Valley Foot Surgeons, Phoenix Top Doc Richard Jacoby is now offering stem cell treatments for diabetic wounds. These treatments are performed as an outpatient and involve subcutaneous injections of amniotic derived stem cell material around the wound.
The procedure offers several benefits in addition to a hefty concentration of stem cells. The material is immunologically privileged and does not cause a rejection reaction. It is processed from an FDA regulated lab.
The amniotic derived stem cells assists with the creation of new blood vessels to help heal the wounds and also contains a significant amount of growth factors. The stem cell material also has antimicrobial properties, helping avoid infection.
Along with the stem cell procedures, Valley Foot Surgeons offers laser treatment simultaneously which further helps with the healing process. With approximately 100 stem cell procedures performed so far for diabetic wounds, the outcomes have been nothing short of incredible.
Wounds have been healing, and much faster than with conventional methods. For more information and treatment with the top foot and ankle stem cell doctor in Phoenix and Scottsdale, call (480) 420-3499.
