Skin grafting is a type of medical grafting involving the transplantation of skin. The transplanted tissue is called a skin graft. Skin grafting is often used to treat: - Extensive wounding or trauma - Burns - Areas of prior infection with extensive skin loss - Specific surgeries that may require skin grafts for healing to occur Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from the patient's own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.
