Live webinars focus on Ophthalmic, Wound Care, Podiatry, and Orthopedic Indications using Cryopreserved Human Birth Tissue
Miami, Fla. – April 21, 2020 – TissueTech, Inc., the pioneer in the development and clinical application of regenerative human birth tissue products and parent company of Amniox Medical, Inc. and BioTissue, Inc., announced today that they have rolled out additional live virtual Professional Education (Pro Ed) webinars to take place throughout April, May and June.
The company’s virtual Pro Ed programs kicked off earlier in March when Amniox pivoted their New Orleans National Pro Ed Symposium to a live virtual event in an effort to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
“The attendance and feedback from our first event was tremendous, and what we keep hearing from our customers is a genuine need that most for them have during these tumultuous times is to provide additional education and training opportunities for them and their staff,” said Tom Williamson, TissueTech Chief Commercial Officer. “It is clearly evident that there is a demand for this and as such, we’ve expanded the scope and frequency of our Pro Ed events offered to help meet this need.”
BioTissue Pro Ed webinar topics include the treatment of ocular surface diseases and indications including corneal ulcers and mechanical dry eye.

Amniox topics include advanced complex wound care and reconstruction, tendon repair, total ankle arthroplasty, calcaneal fractures, and the treatment of non-healing chronic wounds.
