Learn How a Surgeon is Optimizing Clinical Outcomes and Saving Costs with NPWT

Treating your NPWT patients efficiently AND saving costs sounds too good to be true, however Dr. Charles K Lee1 and his team2 share their experience in two recently published posters at SAWC Fall.

Dr. Lee highlights the efficacy of using a single patient, portable NPWT device over an advanced biomatrix and split thickness skin graft (STSG) in a single-stage procedure. Dr. Lee assesses the economic impact on total cost of therapy when using the single patient, portable NPWT device by avoiding a second operation and evaluating ease of transition from inpatient to outpatient status.
