The Banner University Medical Center held a topping off ceremony for its new patient center on Wednesday.  As part of the ceremony tradition, both an American and Arizona flag were raised on top of the nearly 160-foot building. The building is expected to open in 2019.

The trial, completed in November 2016, is part of the company’s ongoing effort to conduct research and obtain the highest level of evidence a medical device can achieve.  The treatment is a key part of efforts to reduce the negative effects of diabetes. Diabetic foot ulcers cost more to treat than the five costliest forms of cancer. In addition, 50 percent of diabetic wounds get infected and every 20 seconds someone undergoes an amputation due to diabetic complications, according to Dr. David G. Armstrong, director of the Southern Arizona Limb Salvage Alliance (SALSA).  Armstrong is widely known for his work in amputation prevention. He has produced hundreds of peer-reviewed manuscripts and authored nearly 100 book chapters.
