Magdi Alexander, MD saves a Nurse’s Leg

A caring, forward thinking physician can be the difference between keeping or losing a limb. Such was the case with Victoria Winter, early in 2013. Victoria suffered from a minor blister on her foot which she felt wasn’t worth seeking medical attention for. However, as a diabetic, Victoria’s blister – combined with her recent flu virus – infected the foot, turning it gangrene.

Her tending physician recommended surgery to amputate the foot before the infection spread throughout her body. Dr. Magdi Alexander stepped in and gave his opinion: he believed he could save Victoria’s foot using cutting edge hyperbaric oxygen chamber technology and intravenous antibiotics which inevitably saved her foot.

Thanks to Dr. Alexander’s quick thinking and elite skills as a physician, he was able to develop a plan with miss Winters that resulted in her returning to work as a Nurse.
