Chicago-based Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush is utilizing BandGrip's Micro-Anchor Skin Closure system as an alternative for surgical staples or other methods for closing wounds.
The alternate suturing system allows for skin to heal in a minimally invasive fashion, and reduces surgical closure times by more than 30 percent.
Midwest Orthopaedics Managing Director Brian Cole, MD, began using BandGrip for his surgical cases. He spoke highly of the product, saying, "The cosmetic results are better than I have seen compared to other closure methods."
