Committed to Saving and Healing Lives: Donate Life America
Advocating for Tissue Donation Across America
Exsurco believes in the healing power of skin and our core values express our belief that tissue donation saves lives.
As a corporate sponsor of Donate Life America, Exsurco Medical supports efforts to spread the word about the importance of tissue, organ, and eye donation.
Exsurco Medical aims to help raise awareness of the importance of tissue donation and the impact it has on the ability to heal lives. The gift of skin to someone in need provides precious grafts to promote and heal.
We’re joining with other companies and volunteers across the country to emphasize the importance of registering as donors. It’s a fundamental act of kindness that helps others live.

The Science of Tissue Transplantation
Amidst the constantly changing world of medicine, innovative research from some of the world’s leading surgeons is finding new ways to use donated human tissue to treat a host of medical conditions. This tissue, referred to as allograft tissue, is donated by registered donors and their families, in the same way organs are donated, and it is used in many life-saving and enhancing medical procedures already, with numerous new opportunities on the horizon.
Donated human tissue is used in many surgical applications, saving peoples’ lives and limbs daily. Allograft tissue is used to replace damaged structures in the body, from the ligaments and tendons of major league sports players, bones and joints of military men and women, to the musculoskeletal structures, teeth, skin, and spinal components of people in need.
The possibilities for the use of human tissue in modern medicine are exciting. Surgeons are researchers are learning more about the growth biology of the human body, about regenerating bone and tissue and using donor stem cells to re-grow physical structures. More information is coming to light to achieve long-term success with groundbreaking procedures such as full limb transplantation.
The Story Of Jeremy
Ten years ago, Jeremy Warriner, of Indianapolis, was driving home from work when a teenage driver made a mistake, forcing Warriner’s car off the road. His vehicle hit a utility pole, leaving him trapped. After the impact the vehicle caught fire. Warriner was pulled from the wreckage, but not before suffering fourth degree burns to the majority of both legs.
