I have had an open diabetic foot ulcer for almost two years. Got it as a result of a walking blister. It refuses to close, and now has a wart growing around it which must be removed. How can i get my wound care clinic and doctors to use apligraft? they have not even suggested it. I had a partial amputation on this foot four years ago, and a skin graft worked wonders at that time to close the surgical wound. Its like they have given up. I go to Hoag Hospital wound care clinic in newport beach, ca
Hello! If your physician hasn't brought up apligraft maybe you should bring it up and go from there. He or she will be able to tell you if the apligraft is the right thing for you. Sometimes are Physician's don't think outside of the BOX; we have to make them do it sometimes. Hope you get better...
