John's Story

The story begins at age nine when John Berges, the founder of VasoCARE, asked his Mom why Nana, his Godmother, always wore pants. Mom shared that Nana was involved in an auto accident when she was in her early twenties, developed blood clots from the trauma, and lives with leg ulcers.

Years later in 1991, while attending an orthopedic convention in New Orleans, John drove over to have dinner with Nana. Yes, she was wearing pants. After dinner while relaxing and playing catch-up about relatives, he noticed dressings appearing just below the hemline of her pants.

The Question

John shared with Nana the question he asked his Mom years earlier. Nana shared her story about the auto accident, how the trauma to her left leg led to blood clots, how the clots destroyed the valves in her leg veins, and eventually required a Greenfield filter to prevent future clots from traveling to her heart or lungs. She shared how the pain, especially when the venous leg ulcers were active, affected her social life and intimacy between her and her husband.

John teared up hearing about her suffering with venous stasis ulcers for over forty years. Nana showed John her Jobst compression stockings, the kind with a zipper. She opened the palms of her hands to show her arthritic fingers that simply did not have the strength to either apply or remove the stockings. At that time, John’s knowledge about venous disease, incompetent valves, chronic venous insufficiency, and venous stasis ulcers was zero.

Later that evening, John hugged Nana and said goodbye. He left to drive back to the hotel in New Orleans for the remainder of the orthopedic convention.

I knew I Needed to Help My Godmother

Upon returning to Cincinnati, John began researching Nana’s condition. He contacted a German manufacturer of pneumatic compression devices and purchased a three chamber sequential compression device and flew back to New Orleans to show Nana how to use this device in treating and managing her venous stasis ulcers. John emphasized how being compliant would help heal and prevent recurrence. Looking back, he can laugh, but at the time he prayed, “Please don’t let this device hurt my Godmother.”

Months Later

After eight months and numerous phone conversations, Nana phoned John to share that this was the longest period without a recurring leg ulcer. Nana said her compression pump was truly a blessing. For John, helping Nana was his blessing!

Using Pneumatic Compression and/or Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation to Treat Patients Suffering with Lymphedema, Stasis Ulcers, and Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Maybe it was a calling, but John’s satisfaction in helping Nana played a major role in becoming involved with pneumatic compression medicine and helping others suffering with venous leg ulcers and peripheral vascular disease. It’s a joy to hear a patient say after sixty minutes of pneumatic compression therapy, “Wow, I can see and feel a reduction in swelling.” “I can flex my ankles.” “Look at me, I’m actually walking and not dragging my feet.” It’s these comments and smiles that give great joy in knowing you’re helping others. It’s truly a blessing!
