Stitches may be necessary if you have undergone a surgical procedure or have experienced a deep cut. With the use of small threads known as sutures, stitches are used to close a wound within the skin. At Health Direction Medical Center, Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel provide stitches, as well as sutures removal when necessary for Chicago, IL area patients. The main goal of both stitches and the removal of sutures is to protect the open wound, prevent infection, and create as little scarring as possible.

How Are Stitches and Sutures Removal Performed?

Prior to recommending or providing stitches, your wound will be carefully evaluated and cleaned. The area may then be numbed with a local anesthetic. Small suture threads and a sterilized needle are used to carefully close the wound and protect the area.

For suture removal, the threads are simply cut and removed. Our team of medical professionals will let you know when to return to our facility in order to have your sutures carefully removed. We will also provide any necessary aftercare instructions to ensure your wound is properly cared for.
