Home wound suturing by a surgeon

Most wounds that occur in the home environment can be repaired with suturing at home, without moving the patient. 

Our home visiting surgeons have:

  • Sterile instruments.
  • Sterile surgical fields.
  • Injectable anesthetic drugs.
  • Diathermy device for possible hemostasis.
  • Sutures of all kinds (absorbable, non-absorbable, etc.).
  • Bandage material.

During the visit, the wound is cleaned and inspected. It is decided whether the injury can be treated at home or needs to be transported to a hospital. 

Cases of injuries that require transport to a hospital:

  • Severed tendon.
  • Large wound whose depth is not visible, mainly in the chest and abdomen.
