Surgeon Perspective

Dr. Zakee O. Shabazz, DPM,  discusses his experience using Dermacell AWM when treating stalled healing diabetic foot ulcers. Dermacell AWM is a human acellular dermal matrix (ADM) that serves as a scaffold to reinforce damaged or inadequate soft tissue during wound healing. Dermacell AWM is decellularized using LifeNet Health's proprietary and validated Matracell® decellularization technology -- and is currently the only ADM that meets the definition of decellularization while preserving the extracellular matrix (ECM) that aids in the healing cascade.

Dr. Shabazz practices in the Washington D.C. area. Believing that feet provide the foundation for a healthy life, Dr. Shabazz specializes in the treatment of wound care, sports medicine, and reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.
