Wound Care

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 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.

Pressure Ulcers

Pressure sores or bedsores occur when there is too much pressure on the skin for too long. This reduces blood flow to the area. Without enough blood, the skin can die and a sore may form. Bedsores most often develop on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the heels, ankles, hips, and tailbone.

People most at risk of bedsores are those with a medical condition that limits their ability to change positions or those who spend most of their time in a bed or chair. Bedsores can develop quickly. Most sores heal with treatment, but some never heal completely.

Trauma Wounds

Traumatic wounds are typically defined as cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds which have caused damage to both the skin and underlying tissues. Due to the severity of traumatic wounds and their vast range of causes, treatment can either be as simple as cleaning and dressing the wound, or it can be more extensive and require surgical intervention to close the wound and stabilize the patient. The treatment of traumatic wounds involves repairing damage to the body’s underlying tissue structures, removing any foreign particles and allowing for drainage of the wounds. All of these steps are essential to prevent the possibility of infection and to promote healing.

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy may utilize amniotic fluid injection or a placental membrane. The amniotic fluid and placental membrane containing multiple layers of the placental membrane retains many of the cytokines, growth factors, extracellular components. These biological components create cell communication signals that the body uses to heal, protect and grow new, healthy tissue within the traumatic wound.

Venous Leg Ulcers

A venous leg ulcer is a sore on the leg that’s very slow to heal, usually because of weak blood circulation in the limb. It can take more than 4 to 6 weeks to heal. They usually develop on the inside of the leg, just above the ankle. The symptoms of a venous leg ulcer include pain, itching and swelling in the affected leg.

Venous leg ulcers are occur because the veins in the leg, which should send blood back to the heart, might not be doing their job very well. That’s often because the valves that stop the flow of blood back into the veins aren’t working like they should.

One of the miracles of the human body is that it naturally regenerates new skin and tissue when an injury occurs. Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy helps to catalyze that regeneration process and continue the recruiting of the body’s stem cells to areas that are receiving weak blood circulation. However, in cases of severe injury, the regenerative process can be dramatically slowed. Wounds that have been sutured still require adequate healing time to allow the

During Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy, your physician will inject amniotic fluid or lay a placental membrane directly on the site of the burn. 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 skin tissue within the burn.

Burns

Burn injuries can be caused by fires, hot liquids or steam, contact with a hot object or agent like grease or tar, chemicals, or electricity. Physicians evaluate a burn injury based on two factors: how deep the burn is and the burn size which is measured by the percent total body surface area (% TBSA). The burn depth depends on how hot the agent was and how long the burned area was in contact with the agent and how thick the skin is in the area. There are three levels of a burn injury: first degree, second degree and third degree.

Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy may utilize amniotic fluid injection or a placental membrane. These products don’t require daily dressing changes and can be left in place until the wound heals. This can make pain control much easier and may decrease anxiety about wound care. The amniotic fluid and placental membrane containing multiple layers of the placental membrane retains many of the cytokines, growth factors, extracellular components. These biological components create cell communication signals that the body uses to heal, protect and grow new, healthy tissue within the burn.
