Leneva Injections for Fat Pad Restoration, Corns, and Calluses
Introducing Leneva® Injections
Leneva® is an allograft adipose matrix derived from donated human tissue used for tissue reconstruction. This is a safe and clinically proven solution to help with foot pain without steroids or surgery.
Leneva® is an injectable human adipose tissue used for tissue reconstruction to support the body’s own tissue regeneration. As a natural extracellular matrix, Leneva provides a safe, all-natural off-the-shelf solution with various clinical applications, including but not limited to:
- Diabetic Foot Ulcers
- Pressure Ulcers
- Tunneling Wounds
- Fat Pad Reconstruction
- Callus and Corn treatment
Dr. Niehaus and Dr.Repko offer Leneva, an FDA-approved injectable, for the restoration of fat pads, tunneling wounds, treating diabetic foot wounds, and alleviating painful calluses and corns. Our goal is to treat foot pain caused by a recurring callus, pain in the ball of the heel or foot, and even ulcerations due to loss of fat padding, all without surgery.
Features & Benefits
- Reduces procedural preparation time with ready-to-use packaging
- Decreases long-term health costs by treating wounds effectively and preventing recurrence

What is an Allograft?
An allograft refers to an organ or tissue donated from one person to another. In the case of Leneva®, the allograft is derived from donated human adipose, or human fat. Surgeons have used allografts successfully for decades to help patients in a variety of procedures.
What is Leneva® and How Can it Help Me?
Leneva® is an off-the-shelf injectable human adipose tissue that is designed to support your body’s own tissue regeneration process. Leneva® undergoes strict processing to maintain the tissue’s structural integrity while retaining key matrix proteins and adipogenic and angiogenic factors. Leneva® may be used for the replacement or reinforcement of damaged or inadequate adipose tissue matrix.
What distinguishes a corn from a callus?
Corns and calluses are both abnormal skin growths caused by pressure. A corn is smaller and typically appears on or between toes, while a callus forms on the bottom of the foot. They are both firm and an extension of the skin’s top layer.
What are the causes of corns and calluses?
Corns often occur due to toe deformities or when the toe rubs against a shoe or another toe. Calluses are common at the ball of the foot and can result from various factors, such as tight Achilles tendon, high heels, barefoot walking, dancing, or anatomical variations like bunions or long second toes.
Why do corns and calluses cause pain?
Thick corns and calluses exert pressure on the underlying skin, leading to discomfort.
What happens if corns and calluses are left untreated?
Ignoring corns and calluses can worsen the pain when walking or wearing shoes. If left untreated, they can damage the healthy skin beneath and cause infections, especially in people with diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, or circulation issues.
How can corns and calluses be treated at home?
Gently exfoliating the affected area using a pumice stone during a shower can help reduce corns and calluses. However, it’s essential to avoid using razors or pulling on the excess skin to prevent infections, especially for people with diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, or circulation problems. Over-the-counter medicated products should only be used under the guidance of a podiatrist to avoid making the condition worse.
What are the other treatment options for corns and calluses?
Reducing pressure on the affected area is key to treating corns and calluses. Wearing wider shoes, using prescribed skin softeners like urea or Amlactin, routine foot care, off-loading pads, and custom orthotics are the initial treatment options. Nonsurgical options like fat allograft (Leneva®injections) can provide pain relief. Surgery may be considered for severe cases.
What is the fat pad?
The fat pad is the thick connective tissue on the ball and the heel of your foot. This padding diminishes naturally with age, but it can also be thinned by high-impact activities, improper shoes or no shoes, plantar fasciitis, and excess weight.
