David Wiseman, PhD, is a recognized expert in the science and business of prevention of surgical adhesions. A pharmacist in the UK, with a doctorate in Experimental Pathology, Dr. Wiseman headed up the Surgical Adhesions research program at Johnson & Johnson Medical. In he 1996 founded Synechion, a research and consulting company focused on adhesions. Dr. Wiseman has conducted extensive research in the area of adhesions and has been involved in one way or the other with almost all of the products that have been developed for adhesions in the last 26 years.
Dr. Wiseman founded the International Adhesions Society (adhesions.org, iscapps.org) providing patient advocacy, information and support. It was instrumental in founding the world’s first center for treating adhesions and CAPPS. The IAS’s own research found that a wearable therapeutic ultrasound device, PainShield® MD, reduced pain in severely afflicted CAPPS patients. This grassroots partnership provided the basis for the founding of KevMed, LLC. (kevmed.com) which now markets this device.
