"HEMIGARD has totally changed the way I close tight wounds and/or wounds involving thin and fragile skin. Before HEMIGARD, many of these types of defects were left to heal by second intent and would take months of follow-ups and wound checks. Those that could be closed primarily, I would worry over skin tears and dehiscence. Now, these types of closures are not an issue at all! Applying HEMIGARD before closure is basically like having an assistant hold the wound together throughout the patient’s entire healing process without any collateral damage. I’ll never go back to practicing without them again!"
