Texas College Student Heals Nonunion Fracture with Help from EXOGEN

Stacey Cain was recovering from a devastating accident. Hit by a car as a pedestrian crossing the street near her college campus, she had both legs broken and after many months of recovery and surgeries, her right tibia was still not healing properly and was now officially a nonunion fracture. She avoided a third surgery and used the EXOGEN Ultrasound Bone Healing System to heal her nonunions and get back to an active life, while preparing to become a new mother.

The video story to the right is representative of a US FDA approved indication for the use of EXOGEN.
