Laceration Repair

Contact Us: Ferndale 248-336-4000 ~ Detroit 313-861-4400

Skin laceration repair is an important skill in family medicine. Sutures, tissue adhesives, staples, and skin-closure tapes are options in our office.

Your EPIC PRIMARY CARE Physician is familiar with various suturing techniques, including simple, running, and half-buried mattress (corner) sutures.

Although suturing is the preferred method for laceration repair, tissue adhesives are similar in patient satisfaction, infection rates, and scarring risk in low skin-tension areas and may be more cost-effective.
