My guest this week is Dr. Stephen L Barrett, CEO, US Neuropathy Centers. In this episode, Dr. Barrett and I discuss neuropathy- what is peripheral neuropathy, who it affects, why you need an accurate diagnosis, what are the common symptoms, why phantom pain phenomenon occurs, and most importantly, how a comprehensive care approach with novel treatments can alleviate pain and improve peripheral neuropathy. As a podiatrist and surgeon, Dr. Barrett shares his expertise in lower body and heel pain (plantar fasciitis) treatment, why diabetes has a strong connection to neuropathy, along with how to help patient compliance.  We talk about peptides, PRP, stem cells, and much more utilized at his neuropathy center.   Watch Dr. Barrett’s recent TEDx talk:   Follow Dr. Barrett     Sponsors Berkeley Life is dedicated to supporting healthy nitric oxide levels--a vital molecule made naturally in the body, responsible for vasodilation and circulation.
