Stem Cell Therapy Available at West End Foot & Ankle

West End Foot & Ankle is now offering stem cell injections. Dr. David Weiss states, “It is something that has been very successful in healing most problems that we encounter in foot and ankle medicine. It also is used in other fields of medicine, including neurology, general surgery, ophthalmology and dentistry. The stem cells are obtained from a placenta that is donated from the mother after a baby’s birth. The cells have a remarkable ability to heal tissue, as well as inhibit inflammation. The injections are typically done in the office, and are relatively painless.”

        Weiss is a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon practicing medicine and surgery for more than 22 years. He says, “This new therapy is the most exciting thing that I have seen since I have been practicing. They are much safer than having a cortisone injection and have saved many people from having to undergo surgery.”

Location: Medical Office Building 2, Ste. 215, 7650 Parham Rd. For appointments, call 804-346-1779. For more information, visit
