Our Mission

At SUTUREGARD Medical, our mission is to lead in the prevention and management of wound dehiscence through innovative wound closure technologies. We are dedicated to providing advanced solutions that minimize the risk of wound separation and promote optimal healing. SUTUREGARD's patented devices, including the HEMIGARD® ASRD and HEMIGARD® Interlock, are designed to reduce tension on wound edges, thereby significantly lowering the incidence of dehiscence. We aim to support surgeons in achieving secure, reliable closures, even in challenging high-tension areas, and to enhance patient outcomes by reducing complications associated with wound healing. By focusing on the prevention of dehiscence, we strive to improve recovery times, decrease healthcare costs, and elevate the standard of care in wound management. Our commitment to excellence drives us to continually innovate and refine our products, ensuring they meet the highest standards of safety and efficacy.

HEMIGARD® Interlock 

HEMIGARD® Interlock is a ZONAL® technology encompassing differential stiffness to offload stress in medium-tension closures without sutures and supports a wound closure for up to three weeks postoperatively.

Surgeon Testimonials

The HEMIGARD® is revolutionizing difficult incisional closures on any extremity.

- Mark Myserson, MD, Past President of the AOFAS

For complex wound closures like amputations or rotational flaps, for me HEMIGARD® is mandatory. Combining barbed suture running sub-cuticular closure augmented with HEMIGARD® to reduce the pressure along the incision line, I have been able to prevent lower leg dehiscence in most of my cases.

- Patrick DeHeer, DPM

I make sure the HEMIGARD is in my OR. With it, I have prevented dehiscence of amputation sites, and I use it on high-risk incisions and incisions spanning joints as "suspenders" on my suturing.

- Danielle Butto, DPM

The HEMIGARD® is an "insurance plan" for my incisions. I can allow earlier ROM and weightbearing while removing stitches/staples in 2-3 weeks and the HEMIGARD in 4-5 weeks.

- Arun Karwal, DPM
