BOBBY RICE SAYS IT ALL STARTED WHEN HE CUT HIS FOOT AFTER STEPPING ON A PIECE OF GLASS LAST SUMMER.  NOT THINKING ANYTHING OF IT, HE SUPERGLUED THE CUT AND CARRIED ON.  A FEW WEEKS LATER, IT WAS BADLY INFECTED AND HIS DOCTOR DIAGNOSED HIM WITH NECROTIZING FASCIITIS, WHICH IS ALSO KNOWN AS FLESH EATING BACTERIA.  WHEN HIS DOCTOR FIRST REMOVED THE FLESH-EATING BACTERIA FROM HIS FOOT AND LEG, THERE WASN'T MUCH LEFT BUT BONE, AND AMPUTATION WAS LIKELY.  THEN HIS PODIATRIST, DOCTOR SPENCER MISNER, THOUGHT OF AN EXPERIMENT USING STEM CELLS FROM PLACENTA AND UMBILICALS.  "WHY NOT? I HAVE NOTHING TO LOOSE AND EVERYTHING TO GAIN," RICE SAID.

DR. MISNER CONTACTED A FACILITY IN CALIFORNIA.  THEY TOLD HIM STEM CELLS HAD NEVER BEEN USED TO RE-GROW A FOOT, BUT DONATED THE TISSUE SO HE COULD TRY.  "KIND OF LIKE FLYING BY MY BOOT STRAPS.  I JUST WAS KIND OF GUESSING ALONG THE WAY,"  DR SPENCER MISNER SAID.  "ONCE I STARTED SEEING HEALING OF THE TENDONS TAKE PLACE, I STARTED GETTING LITTLE GOOSEBUMPY,"  DR. MISNER SAID.  AFTER A FEW MORE TREATMENTS, DR. MISNER SAYS BOBBY WILL BE HEALED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND WILL EVENTUALLY BE ABLE TO LOSE THE WALKER.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODIST, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT IF YOU HAVE INJURED YOUR FOOT IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE IT SEEN BY A SPECIALIST.
