Click HERE to view.
An aging population and the rise of diabetes and other diseases, combined with the impact of the pandemic, has resulted in notable effects on patient morbidity, including amputations. Join us for a webinar followed by a live Q&A to learn more about how effective intervention with a bioengineered, bi-layered, living cellular construct promotes ulcer healing by stimulating wound-edge keratinocytes to activate an acute wound healing response. This presentation will focus on an evidence-based approach to healing debilitating wounds and the significant clinical impact that can be achieved by adopting advanced skin substitutes as part of your treatment continuum.
