What Are Stitches and Sutures Removal?
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.
Health Direction Medical Center Reviews
I found my forever Dr when I found Dr. Ramirez. I have seen a few doctors in my day and I work in the Healthcare system. Dr. Ramirez is so professional and courteous, she takes the time to listen to me as a patient and she really focuses on my overall health. Not one to just prescribe medicatiin just because she can. I can't believe I picked her out of a list of doctors because I had to because of my insurance. Turns out it was the best choice I could ever make.
Great medical office, wonderful and warm experience from start to finish. Appreciate Dr. Ramirez taking time to go over the diagnosis clearly and treatment options. Was referred over by my Friend and can see why. Highly recommended.
(Translated by Google) A person who is worth 10 people, simply beautiful and who helps his patients so much with his charisma and sympathy, thank you Dr. Ramírez, several people are very proud of you, take good care of yourself because you take good care of us ❤️🙏🏻 (Original) Una persona que vale por 10 personas simplemente bella y que ayuda tanto a sus pacientes con su carisma y su simpatía gracias doctora Ramírez varias personas estamos muy orgullosas de usted cuídese mucho por que usted nos cuida bastante ❤️🙏🏻

Hands down, Dr. Ramirez is the best doctor i've ever had. She has been my PCP and friend for over 10 years. I wouldn't have it any other way. Thank you Dr. Ramirez for your dedication to my health, your kindness, and friendship. D.L.
