Dr. Jacoby explains how a woman who is facing diabetic amputation can find a doctor who is qualified to perform Dellon decompression?
The person who is facing an issue that might result in an amputation from diabetes needs to seek out the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons. There’s about 350 doctors worldwide, by the way, that have been trained by Dr. Dellon. To my knowledge to this day, we have not had one amputation.
