Suture Removers | Suture Remover Scissors | Suture Remover Kit

Suture removals are a pair of scissors, tongs, or tweezers that delicately pull out the staples or cut the threads that hold the wound together. Sutures or stitches or staples are used to hold a wound together in place after surgery on the wound. The sutures help in closing the wound so that healing occurs faster. It is one of the oldest and still one of the most successful methods of healing a wound that cannot be healed by simple dressings or ointments. Incisions, abrasions, gashes, amputations, are often treated using sutures. Removing a suture that is too delicate should be left to the hands of a medical professional but many sutures can be removed easily at home.
At Shop Wound Care, we offer a wide range of suture removal products from the best brands such as Medline, McKesson, 3M, etc.
