Podiatrist finds natural healing power

Tissue from donated placenta brings relief to patients with chronic wounds
Kelly Winlock, 77, a below-the-knee amputee, spent years trying and failing treatments to heal leg wounds. But he’s now on the road to recovery using a product that was developed from a membrane of human placenta.
EpiFix uses a human amnion/chorion membrane from the placenta of women who have volunteered to donate it after Cesarean deliveries. Dr. Dan Stilwell, a Durango podiatrist, said the key to the healing power of the sheets of tissue is human stem cells and anti-inflammatories found in placenta.
Dr. Dan Stilwell and his medical assistant, Natasha Twyman, have treated 10 people with longstanding leg wounds with EpiFix. Eight of the patients are completely recovered and the other two are on the road to recovery.
