A cut is a deep tear in skin or flesh. A cut is usually a wound caused by a sharp object. The term laceration implies a torn or jagged wound. It can also be referred to as a gash, avulsion, slash, puncture or many other terms. The clinic offers surgical procedures for closing these wounds with methods such as, sutures, staples, skin adhesive or surgical tape when deemed necessary within 6 to 8 hours after the injury.

When Are Stitches Necessary

Stitches or sutures are necessary if the wound is greater than 1/4 inch deep, is a large or gaping wound, is too big to be closed otherwise or to reduce possible scaring and promote faster healing.
