Traumas to the soft tissues of the body are among the most common injuries treated by medical professionals. The treatment for animal bites, lacerations, abrasions and contusions can take weeks, months and even more time in complicated cases. Sometimes reconstructive surgery is required in order for a wound to close and heal properly. Reconstructive surgery is used to create, rebuild, or restructure the tissue and skin around a wound in order to facilitate healing and minimize scarring.
For the closure of a wound both aesthetic and functional outcomes are important. Eliminating dead space in the tissue, minimizing the formation of scar tissue and properly aligning the edges of the wound to avoid a scar depression require a skilled hand.
Dr. Rogers’ extensive experience with reconstructive surgery includes the latest in wound closure techniques. Whether your case is in the inflammation, tissue formation or tissue remodeling stage and whether your case includes sutures, stitches, staples, adhesives or more advanced procedures, Dr. Rogers will work with you to ensure that you get the best technique for proper wound healing.
