Losing a Foot to Save a Life

In 2013, Jenn Andrews’ focus was on her first pregnancy and a little self-care, when a pedicure technician felt a small bump on Jenn’s foot. What seemed so trivial that day would become so important later. That bump was a tumor – myxoid sarcoma, a rare and potentially life-threatening form of cancer.

A Physician Talks PRP: Using Your Body’s Own Platelets to Heal Injury

Chronic pain can keep your body hurting for weeks, months, or even years at a time, impacting your day-to-day life and even your work and time with family. It can be a result of an injury, other health issue, or there may be no apparent reason for the pain. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is one of the newest ways to treat pain.
