Healing Through Regenerative Medicine
ACell’s products are medical devices that maintain and support a healing environment through remodeling of site-appropriate, functional tissue. Our products are a complex protein scaffold obtained from the tissue of pigs, which has a structure nearly identical to that of human tissue.
Available in particle and sheet form, ACell’s products are appropriate for the topical management of wounds and various surgical procedures. The use of pig tissue is an established practice and a variety of pig tissues have been implanted in humans for medical purposes for more than 40 years.
ACell’s medical devices are available only by prescription through a United States physician, hospital or clinic. Only a physician can determine the best treatment for you. Talk to your doctor about the benefits of ACell’s products.
