"I used the SUTUREGARD® to repair a 3 x 4 cm defect on the Occipital Scalp and was amazed that I was able to close this post Mohs defect without a skin graft or secondary intention healing. I will definitely be using SUTUREGARD® again for large defects on the scalp."

"The SUTUREGARD® is a great device for the scalp! I used to use pulley stitches and towel clamps to stretch the skin but that traumatizes the skin. The SUTUREGARD® device leaves the skin nicely intact and allows me to close a defect with a primary closure instead of doing a flap."

"My 92 year old patient with a 1.5 cm squamous cell carcinoma on atrophic, damaged forearm skin closed beautifully. I don’t think I could have closed the defect... without use of the Hemigard. The skin...would have torn with traditional suturing methods."

"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!"
