A clever concept made simple
Tissue expansion is commonly used in human reconstructive surgery to grow extra skin through controlled mechanical overstretch. It is a proven, reliable method that provides additional tissue for reconstruction. Tissue expansion allows veterinary surgeons to successfully reconstruct in areas which previously may have not been possible. Tissue expansion can reduce the cost of treatment and is a significant improvement to other alternative methods for surgical reconstruction particularly on the distal limbs and heads of dogs and horses.
