We are proud and fortunate to participate with Sanuwave in the clinical trial of the dermaPACE® wound healing device. Sanuwave has chosen our practice to participate in their clinical studies as experts in foot and ankle wound care. All of the City Footcare doctors have many years of experience working in hospital and out-patient settings helping patients heal from chronic, non-healing wounds. We are pleased to be able to add the dermaPACE® device to our many conservative and surgical treatment methods of healing chronic foot wounds. 


Wound Healing

We are currently participating in the U.S. Investigational Device Exemption Clinical Trial of the SANUWAVE dermaPACE® device.

SANUWAVE dermaPACE® device employs the PACE technology.  The lead device for the global wound care market, dermaPACE®, is approved for use outside the United States (CE Marked) for advanced wound care indications and is currently being studied in a U.S-based supplemental pivotal clinical trial for diabetic foot ulcers. 

The doctors at City Footcare are passionate about helping patients with chronic wounds.  According to the American Diabetes Association (the “ADA”), 23.6 million people in the United States have diabetes, 57 million are pre-diabetic and 15% of people with diabetes will acquire a non-healing ulcer in their lifetime. AdvaMed states that over 1.5 million diabetic foot ulcers occur annually, are a recurrent condition, and lead to over 82,000 amputations each year.
