Dr. Richard Jacoby, medical director at the Scottsdale Neuropathy Institute in Arizona, is using amniotic fluid from pregnant women to help stimulate the healing of persistent foot wounds in type 2 diabetes patients. Jacoby injects or wraps the fluid, acquired from an FDA-approved lab, around the nerve area during decompression surgery. "I've done 16 nerves with this technique and all of them have restored their sensation," he said.
