I'd be very skeptical of any protein promoting healing. That assumes you are not getting adequate protein in your diet which would be very unusual as even vegetarians get enough and the average American gets too much. Doctors are not trained in nutrition or physical fitness. Most of their information comes from the food industry in the form of free literature similar to how the drug makers "inform" the doctors.
Additionally, there's a lot of protein folklore out there partly due to protein promotion by the beef/chicken industry. Protein supplements are still good sellers, but not as much as in the past.
By the way, the third leading cause of death in the US after Heart Disease and Cancer, is Medical Care. You might consider a second opinion. My wife had a poorly healling foot after an operation and got a second opinion and found it was an infection.
