Shafaqna Health: In a groundbreaking medical development, a diabetic patient in Scotland has avoided leg amputation thanks to new microwave technology.

Barry Meld, a 74-year-old with type 2 diabetes, had severe foot ulcers that worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic. Surgeons had recommended amputation as the only option. However, a medical student observing Meld’s condition suggested an alternative: microwave treatment.

After nine months of this innovative therapy, Meld has fully recovered. The treatment, developed by the company Emblation in Stirling, uses a low-energy dose of microwaves to activate the immune system and effectively heal ulcers. This technology, known as Swift, has proven to be a successful and non-invasive alternative to traditional treatments.

Meld’s recovery highlights the potential of microwave technology in treating severe diabetic ulcers and avoiding amputations, marking a significant advancement in medical care.
