What is a skin graft?
The process of skin grafting removes a thin layer of skin from one part of the body and adheres that skin to a wound in order to help it heal. Skin grafting can be a highly effective method to help close a large wound.
The negative result however, is the creation of an additional "wound" site where the skin was harvested. We use a biologic or "artificial" skin graft to treat this negative side effect. These "skin substitutes" incorporate several growth factors to improve the healing process.
