My Doctor Calls It "The Save of the Century"
For many years (about 18), I have suffered with foot problems due to diabetes. Eighteen year ago I had a very large wound under my right large toe. It took 18 months for healing to be completed. I did not have the knowledge of WinVivo at that time.
Later I went through a vascular bypass surgery to increase blood flow to my foot and a mid-foot amputation. In August 2011 I had an emergency surgery for the left foot due to blood clots. During my stay in the hospital my foot and ankle surgeon introduced me to the WinVivo. He began using the WinVivo ointment on my foot area and allowed me to continue to use it at home daily. It only took 4 months for my foot to heal. My doctor called my situation "the save of the century"—being able to keep my leg.
