Hyperbaric Center Helps Save Man's Leg

One of the complications of diabetes can be poor circulation, particularly to the feet and lower legs. A diabetic for more than 20 years, Francis Negrotti had undergone amputation of his leg below the knee.

A month after his surgery, Francis’ wound was turning black. Poor circulation was preventing the wound from healing and his doctors feared they might have remove more of his leg.

After receiving 40 hyperbaric treatments, Francis’ wound had healed and the rest of his leg was saved.

“The staff at the Norman Knight Hyperbaric Medicine Center couldn’t have been more helpful. The quality of care I received was terrific and I had a marvelous outcome,” he said.
