Enzymatic debridement relies on the use of enzymes to remove dead tissue. Enzymatic debridement is a technique that removes dead tissue more slowly than debridement with a scalpel (sharp or surgical debridement). The technique is often used in patients who cannot tolerate sharp debridement or to complement sharp debridement. This technique should not be used on wounds with exposed deep tissues, facial burns, or any wound requiring more rapid debridement. Collagenase: Common brand name: Santyl

Under Medicare, the cost of the enzymatic debridement agent is included in the debridement service. In other cases in which you need to purchase it separately, you will need a prescription from your provider to purchase it from a pharmacy or manufacturers.
