    Skin Grafts are here to stay & tradition is Osiris' competitor

    It may seem counter-intuitive to create a new smaller wound (skin graft) to heal a larger wound. But it usually is effective and surgeons feel very comfortable with this procedure which they have honed close to perfection. Given surgeons are generally a conservative group, getting them to change their mode of operation, literally, is a very big challenge for Osiris and any other firm with an innovative product. KCI and surgeons have a close working relationship. Although I am convinced that Osiris' use of mesenchymal stem cells in its products is a vastly superior method for a wide range of applications, Osiris' sales force does face a challenge which, to me, suggests a slow but steady increase of retraining medical personnel. Osiris will get there, gradually, IMHO.
