Organogenesis Celebrates Product Acquisitions; Highlights New Research at SAWC Spring 2017

CANTON, Mass. and SAN DIEGO, April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This week, during the 30th Annual Symposium on Advanced Wound Care Spring|Wound Healing Society meeting (SAWC Spring|WHS), Organogenesis will celebrate company milestones – including the recent acquisition of NuTech Medical and the three-year anniversary of the Dermagraft® acquisition – and highlight new products and research at the nation's largest interdisciplinary wound care forum, held April 5-9 in San Diego.

"As we celebrate the third anniversary of Organogenesis manufacturing Dermagraft right here in San Diego, and all that this product has done to advance the healing of chronic diabetic foot ulcers, it seems only fitting that we are also unveiling the acquisition of NuTech Medical, a collaboration that will expand our product portfolio into the surgical biologics arena, and increase our wound care product portfolio to include a best-in-class amniotic product," said Gary S. Gillheeney, Sr., President and CEO of Organogenesis.

Organogenesis Inc., a commercial leader in the field of regenerative medicine focusing on advanced wound care and surgical biologics, will feature its entire product portfolio at booth #405. The company's recently acquired NuTech Medical Surgical Division will also be featured at booth #104.
