DYNAVISC syringe


For Peritoneal surgery, our Oxiplex®/AP absorbable barrier gel reduces the incidence, extent and severity of postoperative adhesions.

>Amniotic Membrane: Aril™

FzioMed products are comprised of proprietary formulations of two well-characterized and biocompatible medical polymers – carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and polyethylene oxide (PEO). We start with this core science and manufacture gel products that doctors use during surgery to separate and protect traumatized tissues where postoperative adhesions and pain occurs.

Clinical trials with FzioMed products have shown that coating tissues in this way can safely reduce postoperative pain, prevent the formation of adhesions, and improve patient outcomes.3,4,5

Our products have a long history of safe and effective use in a variety of surgery procedures. Our goal is to provide tissue protection without compromise.
