At Wound and Burn Centers of America, under the leadership of Dr. Hajhosseini, we offer bioengineered skin and soft tissue substitutes for optimal wound healing. These advanced products mimic natural skin and tissues, promoting faster and more effective healing for patients with chronic or complex wounds, thus minimizing or eliminating the need for hospitalization.

About Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes

Bioengineered skin and soft tissue substitutes are innovative medical products designed to replicate the structure and function of natural skin and tissues. These substitutes are created using a blend of biological materials, synthetic components, and living cells. They serve as temporary or permanent solutions for skin and tissue loss, providing an optimal environment for cell growth and tissue regeneration. By promoting wound healing and reducing the risk of infection, bioengineered substitutes are ideal for patients with chronic or complex wounds.

Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes Treat:

  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Pressure sores
  • Burn injuries
  • Surgical wounds
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Chronic wounds
  • Venous ulcers
  • Soft tissue defects
  • Radiation wounds

Benefits of Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes:

  • Speeds up the wound-healing process significantly
  • Promotes healthy tissue growth for minimal scarring
  • Reduces pain and discomfort during the healing process
  • Suitable for treating a wide range of chronic wounds
  • Provides a barrier to protect against infections
  • Facilitates quicker recovery and mobility restoration
  • Shortens or eliminates hospital stays and reduces overall healthcare costs
  • Utilizes materials that lower the risk of immune rejection
  • Integrates well with the patient’s existing tissues
  • Creates ideal conditions for cell growth and regeneration

Types of Bioengineered Skin & Soft Tissue Substitutes

Allogeneic substitutes are derived from donor human skin and undergo processing to remove cells that might trigger an immune response. This leaves behind a collagen-rich scaffold that supports the patient’s own cell growth and tissue regeneration. These are particularly useful for treating chronic wounds and burns, as they promote natural healing processes while minimizing the risk of rejection and infection. Their use can significantly accelerate the healing process.

Made from animal tissues, typically porcine (pig) or bovine (cow), xenogeneic substitutes are meticulously treated to remove cellular components, reducing the risk of immune rejection. These substitutes provide a supportive extracellular matrix that facilitates the growth of new tissue. They are versatile and effective for a variety of wound types, including burns and diabetic ulcers. Xenogeneic substitutes stabilize the wound environment and promote faster healing.

Composed of biocompatible materials like collagen, silicone, or other polymers, synthetic substitutes are designed to integrate seamlessly with the body’s tissues. These materials are engineered to provide a stable and supportive scaffold that encourages new tissue growth and wound closure. Synthetic substitutes are ideal for use in surgical wounds, traumatic injuries, and other situations where reliable and consistent performance is critical.

Composite substitutes combine elements of natural and synthetic materials and incorporate living cells to enhance the healing process. For example, a composite substitute might include a synthetic scaffold infused with growth factors and stem cells to promote rapid and effective healing. This approach can result in improved tissue integration, reduced scarring, and better overall outcomes for patients with complex or chronic wounds.
