3M™ Prevena™ Therapy Patient Information

Resources for surgeons to support patients benefitting from Prevena Therapy

You have chosen 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy for management of your patient’s surgical incision. Now what?

Protecting the incision after surgery is important to your patient’s recovery, and with patients increasingly discharged more quickly into the community this can be a cause for concern for both clinicians and patients.

This page is designed to provide surgeons with resources to support patients and community healthcare professionals to be empowered and informed in managing surgical incisions at home.

From hospital to home

This easy-to-understand video explains to patients why their surgeon has chosen Prevena Therapy to manage their surgical incision, how they should wear and use the device at home, and what to look out for in case they need to contact a healthcare professional.

NOTE: Applicable therapy units include the 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy 125 Unit and Prevena™ Plus 125 Therapy Unit 7 Day.

The indication statement does not apply to the Prevena Plus 125 Therapy Unit (14-day) that comes with the 3M™ Prevena Restor™ System Kits (see Prevena Restor™ System indications for use).
