Kelly Chambers loves spending part of her day walking her dog. But when Chambers fell on one of their outings and broke her tibia, a bone in her lower leg, she had to trade the leash for crutches and spend her days waiting instead of walking.
After three months without healing, Chambers visited her doctor. He prescribed EXOGEN, explaining that the device uses ultrasound waves to help heal broken bones. “At the beginning I thought it sounded crazy,” she said. “But I am definitely a believer now.”
That’s because EXOGEN put Chambers well on her way to healing. She’s getting back to the things she loves, like walking her favorite four-legged friend. Her dog is glad — and so is Chambers.
“It takes just 20 minutes — so it’s quick and pain-free,” said Chambers. “I’m so thankful to my doctor for recommending it.”
Clinical trials for EXOGEN have demonstrated a heal rate of 86% for non-union† fractures.4 Results may vary from patient to patient due to various factors.
