Houston, TX – 06/15/2015. DermaClip® today announced the appointment of Dr. Mark L. Waltzman, MD, FAAP, to its Medical Advisory Board. Dr. Waltzman is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and the Chief of Pediatrics at South Shore Hospital in Weymouth, MA. Dr. Waltzman is recognized as a dedicated and experienced clinician, and an expert in the field of pediatric emergency medicine. His appointment brings a depth of knowledge and experience regarding the needs of providers when closing pediatric lacerations, as we move forward in introducing the DermaClip Skin Closure Device into the US market.
DermaClip® aims to optimize incision, laceration and wound repair through non-invasive, cost-effective and efficiency-producing skin closure devices. The DermaClip device is a non-invasive skin closure device that is an alternative to sutures, surgical staples and glues. The device aims to improve the patient experience while reducing the time and cost burden of closure by transforming a highly variable skill into a reproducible process. The device has been used in more than 30,000 cases, everywhere from in the field to the Emergency Department to the surgical suite. The DermaClip team believes that high quality skin closure should be available to everyone, regardless of access to high-end services. The team aims to eliminate the trade-offs in skin closure made between time of closure and quality of patient care. DermaClip is headquartered in Houston, TX.
