    We had a guy not too long ago that came in with maggots in his wounds. It was amazing how clean his wounds were!

    That's really cool. The DPM that I shadowed is a huge proponent of maggot therapy.

    More info here.

    His name is Peter J. Mancuso. Awesome guy, really got me excited about podiatry.
