Regenerative medicine has opened new doors for us as doctors,” says Dr. Kerry Zang, podiatric medical director, CiC Foot & Ankle. “Instead of just treating the symptoms and pain, we are able address the root cause of many different conditions and have the potential to fix what’s causing the problem.”
The newest form of regenerative medicine is amniotic-derived fluid or growth factor injections. This type of injection is one of the most promising and safe alternatives to managing chronic foot pain caused by injury, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, neuropathy or even residual pain from prior surgery. “This therapy stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to repair chronically damaged tissue,” explains Zang. “This is exciting because patients who’ve been living with foot pain who have had treatment that didn’t work, now have a chance of feeling better.”
Dr. Zang started practicing in Mesa, Arizona in 1970. He recently joined Comprehensive Integrated Care as the podiatric medical director of its foot and ankle division. He is Diplomate of the American Board of Podiatric Surgery, a Fellow of the American College of Foot & Ankle Surgeons and Chairman of Axolotl Biologix’s Medical Advisory Board.
An innovator in his field, he has recently developed a new, non-surgical treatment protocol for neuropathy of the feet. He has designed implants and surgical devices that are currently being used by surgeons across the country. Dr. Zang is also the co-author of several papers, including a placebo-controlled randomized study on Low-Level Laster Therapy at 635nm for Treatment of Chronic Plantar Fasciitis published in The Journal of Foot and Ankle surgery.
Respected among physicians for his unique diagnostic skills, he is often consulted on complicated and challenging cases. During his years in practice, he has learned that one of the more important aspects of treating patients is listening.
