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 Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, your physician will inject amniotic fluid or lay a placental membrane directly on the diabetic wound. The amniotic fluid or placental membrane will migrate into the wound margins and begin recruiting your body’s stem cells and healing components within your blood to help rebuild and regenerate new, healthy granulation tissue within the wound bed.
