Territory Business Manager (Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery) – Detroit, MI
Within a designated area this position is responsible for the introduction and sales of SimpliDerm, a pre-hydrated human acellular dermal matrix with a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10-6 and requires a minimal 2-minute sterile rinse for convenient intraoperative use.
By maintaining a more intact matrix, SimpliDerm enhances and supports the angiogenic process, provides a more pliable matrix, and results in a lower risk of inflammatory response, fast integration and rapid revascularization. SimpliDerm is available in both Ellipse™ and rectangular sizes designed to meet a range of surgical needs and provide intraoperative ease of use. SimpliDerm with perforations is available to facilitate plane-to-plane fluid transfer upon implantation. In direct comparison to another human ADM product, SimpliDerm has lower inflammatory response, robust matrix regeneration and integration, and lower fibrotic response in a non-human primate model.
This position is a part of a pilot launch, introducing this new, innovative product to an established market. Market development responsibilities include identifying hospitals and surgeons, conducting professional presentations, discussing pre-clinical and clinical data, visits and follow-up with surgeons and supporting personnel on a regular basis.
