We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive discussion with your peers to gain your perspective in support of our ongoing industry research.

Join us for this Timely Discussion!

We are pleased to invite you to an exclusive Frost & Sullivan Virtual Think Tank discussion with your peers to discuss Best Practices in Surgical Debridement.

Join Frost & Sullivan, in partnership with Smith & Nephew, as you and your peers share experiences and perspectives on hydrosurgery and other forms of debridement.

The key questions we will be discussing are:

Comparison of alternative techniques: What are the key advantages and challenges associated with available techniques for debridement, including sharp, surgical, ultrasound, and hydrosurgical debridement?

Technique selection: What is your decision-making process for selecting a technique for a particular case? Are there certain wounds or patients best treated using a specific technique?

Trends and best practices: How are debridement techniques evolving? What factors are influencing those trends? Personal experience? Evolving evidence? Payer requirements? And what will become best practices in the future?

Frost & Sullivan’s Virtual Think Tanks are unique and highly-engaging networking sessions for you to experience with other leading clinicians. Your participation in this event will help Smith & Nephew to better serve the global surgery community with educational programs, clinical support, and technological innovation. Frost & Sullivan’s David Ribble, Senior Consultant, Healthcare & Life Sciences, will be supporting these discussions by moderating the questions, managing the agenda, and producing a summary article where you may be featured as a thought leader in the field.
