What is Wound Repair Surgery?

At Aurora Health Care, reconstructive plastic surgeons correct deformities caused by wounds from trauma, cancer or congenital abnormalities. Wound repair is an important part of what we do – we care for wounds by performing procedures that help them heal and we restore a more normal appearance after the wounds have healed. Two wound repair procedures used are primary sutures (stitches to close the initial wound) and skin grafts. 

How is Wound Repair Surgery Performed?   

There are many procedures to correct and repair wounds, and the steps of each procedure vary greatly. If you have questions about your specific condition or wound repair surgery, contact your reconstructive plastic surgeon at Aurora Health Care.

There are many important considerations a surgeon must make before deciding on the best course of wound repair, including the type of wound, risk of infection and age of the wound.

Procedures used in wound repair surgery include skin grafts, tissue expansion and primary sutures (or stitches to close your wound).
