Does Urgent Care Do Stitches?

The answer is yes. If you are in the South Jersey or Delaware Valley area and suffer a fall or mishap that requires stitches, Cooper Urgent Care is nearby to provide you with expert care. Our urgent care centers in Audubon, Cinnaminson, and Cherry Hill have an experienced team of providers that treat cuts and wounds with sutures (stitches), staples, or glue (Dermabond) as wound-closure options.

How Do You Know if You Need Stitches?

When you experience a cut, first wash the area and examine the wound. Upon examination if you identify any of the following conditions you most likely require stitches:

  • The cut is deeper than a quarter inch.
  • The cut is in a cosmetic location that may scar, such as your face, head, etc.
  • The cut continues to bleed after 15 minutes of applying gentle pressure.

When you visit any of our three convenient neighborhood urgent care facilities, you’ll experience the same expert treatment and care that Cooper University Health Care has built a 130-plus year reputation on.

  1. It’s good to know that you should get stitches if you get a cut on a cosmetic part of your body. My son got a cut on the top of his head. It isn’t bad at all but it would probably be smart to get it stitched up.
