Diabetic Foot Ulcers
A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. Diabetes is the leading cause of non-traumatic lower extremity amputations in the United States, and approximately 14-24 percent of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer will require an amputation. Foot ulceration precedes 85 percent of diabetes-related amputations. Research has shown, however, that development of a foot ulcer is preventable.
During Recruitment Therapy, your physician will lay a placental membrane directly on the diabetic wound. The placental membrane will migrate into the wound margins and will promote the body’s own healing process to rebuild and regenerate new, healthy granulation tissue within the wound bed.
