Bio-Engineered Tissue

Bioengineered Skin

Over the past two decades, the field of wound healing and tissue repair has witnessed tremendous advances resulting from the biological sciences, biomedical and tissue engineering, and greater clinical understanding of wounds and their pathophysiology. In large part because of these advances, clinicians are now able to offer and deliver more sophisticated and effective treatments to patients with acute wounds, chronic wounds, burns, and other types of injuries.

The use of bioengineered skin has resulted in very substantial and demonstrable improvements in wound care. The advances that have occurred in testing and proving the efficacy of bioengineered skin hold great promise for further improvements in the way this technology is used in the surgical field and in wound care.
