Dr. Kenneth J. Donovan treats patients with wounds at his Warren office, The Center for Burn and Wound Healing in Livingston, and The Center for Wound Healing at Robert Wood Johnson – Somerset. He utilizes the latest advancements in wound care to achieve successful closure of hard to heal wounds.
The latest such advancement is Cellutome: A procedure that utilizes the patient’s own healthy skin cells from a donor site, and transplants them to the wound site. Unlike traditional skin graft measures which require surgery and leave behind a painful donor site wound, Cellutome can be done safely in the office without anesthesia and without any donor site pain. This is accomplished with a revolutionary vacuum-like device, which sucks small layers of skin from the donor site, allowing for painless transfer to the wound. Wounds that took months to heal are now taking only weeks to heal.
