What are Surgical Incisions?
Surgical incisions, also commonly referred to as surgical wounds, are thin cuts in the skin that are typically made by a scalpel during surgery. These surgical incisions may have been used to place drains in the treatment area following surgery, or as an entry site for surgical instruments. While surgical incisions are common, they can often be categorized into four levels based on their risk of infection and placement on the body. If you have a high-risk surgical incision and are interested in having extra help taking care of it, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation with one of our expert team members at your earliest convenience.
What are the Symptoms of a Surgical Incision Infection?
Surgical wounds will all look like traditional cuts in the skin, but can easily change in appearance and feel when they begin to get infected. We encourage all of our patients to monitor their surgical incisions and ensure that the surrounding skin is not changing drastically. If you find that your surgical incision has started to get more red and painful, ooze fluids with a foul smell, or started developing pus, we encourage you to contact us for treatment as soon as possible as these are classic signs of an infection.

- Topical and oral antibiotics
- IV antibiotic therapy

- Minimally invasive and microsurgery
