Groundbreaking scar research at Esprit Cosmetic Surgeons



Over the last few years our team at Connall Cosmetic Surgery has had the honor of working with Excaliard Pharmaceuticals, Inc. as a clinical research site.  Excaliard is a San Diego-based company that has developed a novel investigational drug designed to decrease post-operative scarring.  I have been a primary investigator tasked with testing the drug in surgical patients. As a research site, we have performed clinical trials to test the safety and effectiveness of the drug on scars when used in the immediate healing phase.

Technology in Plastic Surgery



I recently attended the 2nd Technology in Plastic Surgery conference in San Francisco.  The meeting was very informative, covering may key issues related to aesthetic and reconstructive surgery problems.  Most plastic surgery meetings are about surgical technique- how to perform procedures in the operating room.  This meeting was quite different.  It was about science and technology to improve patient outcomes in the clinic and operating room settings.
