Graft
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. Bone grafting is used to repair bone fractures that are complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly.
