Bringing the Science of Nerve Repair to Life.
ALACHUA, Fla. (PRWEB) June 13, 2008
Avance Nerve Graft is a peripheral nerve repair option that is comprised of donated human peripheral nerve tissue. With more than 100 implants, Avance Nerve Grafts have enabled recovery in patients with peripheral nerve injuries since 2007. Avance Nerve Graft is unique from all other nerve repair options because it gives surgeons the ability to repair damaged peripheral nerves with allograft nerve without the need for a secondary surgical site and without the need for immunosuppressive medications.
It is estimated that one musculoskeletal tissue donor can improve the quality of life for up to 50 people. With the development of Avance Nerve Graft, the opportunity for a donor to enrich the lives of recipients will expand dramatically.
The mission of the American Tissue Services Foundation, a nonprofit organization, is to rebuild lives through the gift of donation. The Foundation provides compassionate support for donor families during the donation event and beyond, employs highly competent and caring staff, and partners with organizations dedicated to the innovative use of tissue in medical care and research.
