Staying current with laceration treatment
Dr. Engineer is committed to staying completely current on the latest and most effective treatment options and will draw from his experience and knowledge to close your wound in order to minimize scarring. Methods of wound closure may include:
- Absorbable sutures
- Synthetic sutures
- Dermabond or other adhesives
For very severe lacerations, skin grafting, tissue expansion, or flaps may be necessary, all of which allow skin to be transplanted from another area of the body to assist in smooth wound closure.
