Colloidal Silver and Surgical Wound Care Presentation Given at 2012 SIGN Conference

At the 12th annual SIGN Fracture Care International Conference on “Treatment of Difficult Fractures Around the World,” Dr. Samuel Hailu gave a presentation on the use of colloidal silver as a wound wash to help mitigate infections in fracture wounds. 

The Conference was attended by 150 surgeons from 22 countries.

Dr. Hailu discussed his proposed study, “Effect of Colloidal Silver on Open Lower Extremity Fracture Infection: Randomized Control Trial,” which drew interest among the doctors in attendance. 

The Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from TheSilverEdge.com was demonstrated at the conference as an inexpensive yet effective means of producing high-quality colloidal silver (see image below). 

And a display and related handout materials, including a list of clinical studies on the use of antimicrobial silver as an infection-fighting agent, were available for the surgeons.

Silver has been studied as an antimicrobial agent, and used in surgical wound care since the 1970’s, when Dr. Robert O. Becker, M.D. conducted his original pioneering research into the effects of electrically generated silver ions on human cells and wound healing.

SIGN is an international organization that supports trauma surgeons in developing nations who have committed their lives to serving the injured poor. 

SIGN provides educational support and specialized equipment to surgeons in 41 countries throughout the developing world, who in turn provide surgical care to indigent patients suffering from severe and often complex fracture trauma.

This is very interesting.

I've often wondered why the Hospitals in the United States have not been using Colloidal Silver Water.

There are MOUNTAINS of Clinical Data available going clear back to before the time of Christ, that describe in detail the Antimicrobial effects of Silver.

This Ionic Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator produces uncommonly small silver micro-particles
as low as .0008 microns http://thesilveredge.com/mp5.shtml. That's a fraction of a single micron!!!!

It should be National News on the television and radio DAILY that Collodial Silver Water kills MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus)

I can't wait to see the results of this study so that I can add it to the Mountain of Evidence already available.
