Podcast: Next Generation Procedure to Repair and Regenerate Peripheral Nerves


A conversation between Karen Jagoda of Empowered Patient Podcasts and Karen Zaderej, President, CEO, and Chairman of Axogen Inc., a leader in the science of peripheral nerve regeneration and repair.


Axogen is the Next Generation Procedure to Repair and Regenerate Peripheral Nerves. leader in the science of peripheral nerve regeneration and repair. Surgeons have always been challenged to restore feeling in damaged peripheral nerves due to accidents and surgical procedures.

Karen says, "Traditionally, they've removed the nerves that give you sensation for your foot to allow you, for example, to move your hand or have sensation in your fingers. Obviously, there are downsides to that, but moving your hand is probably more important for the patient. So that would have been the gold standard."'

"So, you'd have two procedures, one to remove the nerve and another to fix the injury site. Today, what we're doing is providing surgeons an off-the-shelf opportunity to be able to do that same repair of the cut nerve and bridging of the gap, but to do it without taking another nerve from out of your body."
