Some injuries don’t call for just medical attention. Deep, complex lacerations to the head, face or neck, for example, often require additional treatment by an experienced professional trained in plastic surgery. Though we often think of plastic surgery in terms of breast implants or tummy tucks, the truth is that most types of plastic surgery are not done for cosmetic reasons. Non-cosmetic plastic surgery can include reconstructive surgeries, hand surgeries, microsurgeries and burn treatments, to name a few.
At Florida Hospital Orlando, we’ve teamed up with the Plastic Surgery Specialists to create the Suture Clinic, a convenient, reliable resource for our neighbors who need plastic surgery services. The Suture Clinic is located on the first floor of Florida Hospital Orlando, inside of our Surgical Rapid-In-and-Out Center. Here, patients who may be in need of plastic surgery will have access to some of the finest physicians and latest, most advanced medical treatments available, all within the caring, compassionate, patient-focused environment on which Florida Hospital has build its reputation.
The Suture Clinic opens weekdays at 8 a.m. and weekends at 9 a.m. Appointments are necessary; you can schedule an appointment through the Florida Hospital Orlando Emergency Department. Call us at (407) 303-1909 to schedule your appointment today.
Please plan to arrive at least 20 minutes before your appointment, as there will be some registration paperwork we’ll need you to fill out. We will also collect your insurance information at this time.
