Laura Heath, D.P.M.’12

Dr. Heath, a podiatric physician with the Phoenix Veterans Administration Health System, presented her research at Desert Foot 2014, the high-risk diabetic foot conference, in Phoenix in November. She presented results in 40 patients who were successfully treated with dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) graft to full epithelialization. Participants in her study had undergone prior treatment for a chronic lower extremity foot ulcer that had failed to heal for at least four weeks after the start of treatment. Heath told Medical News Today that her “results indicate that dHACM is a useful wound-healing modality for recalcitrant lower limb ulcers.”
