We use an amnionic injectable allograft in our office which consists of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and growth factors. These natural properties of the allograft provide PROTECTION, LUBRICATION, and SUPPORT  to tissue.  Also, the procedure is fast, convenient, non-steroidal and natural. The final product goes through a rigorous process by third party CLIA approved labs that conduct serological and endotoxin testing to make sure they well exceed FDA requirements.  If you have any painful areas of your foot and ankle including joints that have been treated with a cortisone injection,  physical therapy, custom functional orthotics and surgery without relief, we urge you to contact us to schedule a consultation for an amnio injection.


Diabetic foot wounds are a challenging complication for any person diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus.  Our goal is to prevent diabetic wounds from occurring and if they do develop we strive to close it as quickly as possible to prevent infection which can avoid future amputations. And to do that we use an amnio allograft to promote granulation tissue and decrease healing time. Don’t lose your limbs to diabetes.  We are here to help if you call us for a consultation.


Pain in your foot or ankle is not normal and that’s why our Class IV laser is available to treat any resistant painful foot or ankle problem.  Laser therapy is a safe, non-invasive, painless and effective procedure that penetrates the skin and underlying structures that accelerate the body’s natural healing process. Laser therapy decreases inflammation, decreases muscle tightness and soreness, decreases pain, and increases range of motion and increases faster recovery and healing. If you are suffering from any musculoskeletal pain and NSAIDs and narcotics are not giving you relief, we encourage you to come in for a consultation before you consider surgery for any of your foot and ankle pain.
