Stitch or Suture Removal & Wound Dressing

Stitch or Suture Removal & Wound Dressing

HealYos has a team of trained and skilled doctors that perform safe and appropriate stitch removal and wound dressing at home, with all aseptic precautions.

Sutures or stitches are used to hold the surgical site in place and close the wound in order to promote healing. The wound needs to be cleaned and the sutures need to be removed carefully in a safe and accurate manner.

Sutures or stitches need to be removed at a particular time ensuring the wound has healed completely. Timed stitch removal is necessary to avoid swelling of the part, scarring and other associated complications. Ideally, stitch removal is done after 15 days of surgery, depending on the type of surgery and the surgeon’s preference.
