Physical injuries can range from minor to severe. Sometimes, you may incur a small cut or scrape and not think twice about it. However, even these injuries can become infected and lead to illness. Therefore, coming in for care if you’re injured is essential to staying healthy. At InnovateMed, Dr. Williams offers laceration treatments that involve cleaning, wrapping, and sometimes stitching wounds.

What Are Laceration Treatments?

A laceration is an injury involving a tear or cuts within the skin, flesh, or other tissues of the body. It is typically caused by a sharp object or blunt force trauma and can range from a minor cut or scratch to a deep wound that requires medical attention. When these injuries occur, laceration treatments are needed to address the wound quickly and prevent infection and complications. The process involves disinfecting, treating, and possibly stitching a wound when it occurs.

What Kinds of Lacerations Do We Treat?

Lacerations come in different shapes and sizes. The severity of your injury matters when deciding whether or not to come in for treatment. In the case of major injuries, such as deep cuts, professional wound care is absolutely necessary. That being said, we also address minor cuts and scrapes as well. Any injury you have (that is not life-threatening) can be treated effectively here at our InnovateMed office. If you have a life-threatening injury, you need to contact emergency services.

Why Lacerations Require Treatment

Treatments for lacerations are essential to prevent blood loss, infection, and other complications that can result from an open wound. In some cases, specific lacerations can be treated at home. However, deep cuts need to be addressed by a medical professional like Dr. Williams since, in many cases, stitches may be required.
