I have struggled with some slow healing wounds on my leg. One wound clinic could not help as I struggled for several months. Sooo…I followed a suggestion I heard a time ago; “It makes no sense to repeat the same action over and over again and expect different results.”
I moved to a different wound care clinic at Tri Star Southern Hills on Nolensville Pike, they uncovered a MERSA infection, they cleared that up with antibiotics. Wounds were healing slowly, but not fast enough for Dr Sudberry. He decided to use a fairly new treatment using a stem cell matrix developed with amniotic stem cells.
Amniotic stem cells are the mixture of stem cells that can be obtained from the amniotic fluid as well as the amniotic membrane. They can develop into various tissue types including skin, cartilage, cardiac tissue, nerves, muscle, and bone.
The stem cells fooled my body into thinking the wounds were that of a small infant. My doctor told me that if an adult breaks a bone the ends have to be touching each other securely for good healing. If an infant breaks a bone healing will occur if the two ends of the bone are in the same room!
The stem cell matrix is working, two wounds are healed and one is almost completely healed. All this in a matter of weeks.
