In His Own Words

"They did more than heal my wound. They saved my leg."

It took 139 days at the Center for Wound Healing at FHN, but George Visel thinks every second was worth it. Referred by an FHN surgeon who recommended trying treatment here instead of scheduling an amputation, George suffered from a bone infection commonly associated with diabetic wounds.

"My treatment saved my leg. It was one of the best experiences in my life, because of the people and the place," George proclaims. "Now I'm able to do all the things I used to do. I'm back to normal."
