Dr. Shermi Parikh, DPM, and her team at Family Foot and Ankle Center in Niles and Berwyn Center, Illinois, offers a non-invasive way to treat foot pain caused by a recurring callus, metatarsalgia, and even ulcerations due to loss of fat padding. As we age, the fat pad to our feet shifts or thins down, causing increased pressure points and pain with every step we take.

- Ready to use out of packaging reducing procedural preparation time
- Wound treatment may allow for decreased long-term health costs from repeat patient visits due to wound recurrence
- Preservation of natural derived endogenous components (matrix proteins, growth factors, cytokines) vital to adipogenesis and angiogenesis
- Provides extracellular matrix that functions as a scaffold for patients own cells to create new fat
- Pre-clinical studies in athymic mice demonstrate significant adipocyte formation in the host
- Leneva is tested for sterility per USP<71> without the need for terminal sterilization methods
