You Are A Healer!
June is Wound Healing Awareness Month. We are proud to launch our Wound Healing Awareness Month campaign to raise awareness, featuring the health care professionals who treat chronic and complex wounds and highlighting the use of Cryopreserved Umbilical Cord Allograft as an adjunct therapy to help promote wound healing.
Together, we can change the world!
If you are a healer who wants the very best for your patients, you have a passion for healing. You want to serve to save lives and alleviate suffering. You are inspired by science, staying open to new technologies and ideas. You have a strong sense of purpose. Using your knowledge and skills to transform people’s lives. You are a healer.
At BioTissue, we too are healers developing innovative allograft technologies. We believe that when clinicians, scientists and researchers come together, engage with each other and learn from each other. The result is even more powerful, forging new pathways in wound healing. With a powerful community of healers, we can open the door to a healthier future and realize the full potential of regenerative therapy.
Together, we can change the world!

Dr. Fusco’s Experience with Neox
“I had a patient come in today who’s had a wound for almost a year. He had one graft application last week to the bottom of his foot, came in today, and his foot is already healed… He [patient] is very happy to be walking on his foot again.” – Dr. Thomas Fusco
Dr. Fusco’s patient presented with end-stage renal disease on dialysis. Venous insufficiency and lower extremity edema, and hypertension. He was in a car accident approximately 30 years prior.
The patient had an open draining wound on his leg for over a year and was recommended amputation. As a healer and to avoid amputation Dr. Fusco talked to the patient about Neox and the power of human birth tissue. A patient with multiple comorbidities and a desire to prevent amputation is our focus to alleviate suffering and address the patient unmet needs realizing the full potential of regenerative therapy.
Dr. Fusco excised the wound in the OR, removed the infected bone, packed with antibiotic cement, and removed the hardware. He applied Neox 1K directly over the bone and attempted closure knowing it would open. The healing cascade and the power of our product is seen in these images.

Featured Patient Stories
A diabetic patient who contracted COVID and developed clots in his leg and had to have a hemipelvectomy. His wound developed MRSA. The patient was placed on palliative care, but his surgeon did not give up. She debrided the patient’s wound and used Neox on the wound site. She was unsure Neox would be enough, especially since this was her first time using it. The patient’s wound has since healed, and he is on his way to a second chance at life. Not all heroes wear capes, but our Wound Care Warriors harness the power of Neox to help save lives one leg at a time.
Jim was working with a doctor who was frustrated with a non-healing complex chronic wound on one of his terminally ill patients. The patient had wounds in both feet that had not healed over one and a half years. Jim asked the doctor for the chance to show him what Neox could do for that patient. The patient, a 47-year-old male, had lost all ten of his toes to amputation and had other comorbidities, including type 2 diabetes and pancreatic cancer. The doctor was sure he’d need to amputate this patient’s legs if his wounds did not heal. He had already tried other allografts that failed to achieve closure. The doctor placed two Neox 1K applications on the right foot, which completely healed after two months, and the left foot required three applications. When Jim saw the patient during his final application of Neox, the patient held a new pair of custom-made orthopedic shoes and was ecstatic to wear shoes again. He thanked Jim profusely and said, “Even if I ‘go’ soon, I am so happy to be able to walk and enjoy my family now!”
