In 2000, Gail McDaniel helped Cook launch a new technology: small intestinal submucosa (SIS).
Sixteen years later, Gail noticed an incisional hernia in the spot where she had previously had surgery. When her surgeon told her that she would need a surgical repair, he mentioned that he’d need to reinforce the repair with a mesh. She asked him to use Biodesign®, a biologic graft made using porcine SIS.
Watch her talk about how (and why) she spoke up for herself.
