Skin Substitution Treatment
 

Skin Substitution Treatment

To treat a diabetic foot ulcer, many physicians recommend a skin graft.  Skin cells are either taken from another place on the body (resulting in another sore) or froma donor (resulting in a poorly matched patchy are), and placed over the ulcerated area.  Neither have satisfying results.  Instead, The Diabetic Foot Institute offers new Skin Substitution Technology, a revolutionarydevelopment that requiresno anesthesia.  Skin that has been genetically engineered to match flawlessly with the recipient's is overlaid on the ulcer.  Skin SUbstitution Technology also supresses the body's natural reaction to "reject" the new skin, allowing a smooth and rapid recovery period that is twice as fast as the conventional healing time.
