Donaldson Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Solutions Offers Suture Clinic

supporting local emergency rooms

During this difficult time in Columbus, the medical professionals at Donaldson Plastic Surgery are looking for creative ways to support and give back to the community that has given so much to our practice.  With children home from school and literally bouncing off the walls, and parents joining in on the fun, we know that accidents happen! In an effort to both free-up ER physicians for their COVID-19 patients, and to prevent healthy families from potentially risking exposure in a hospital setting, Donaldson Plastic Surgery is offering laceration repair services on an urgent or emergent basis.

Receive sutures from an expert plastic surgeon

We are offering services to patients of all ages with lacerations (cuts) on the face or body. With a laceration, the wound must be sewn shut quickly in order to prevent further damage or infection, and to minimize any potential scarring that may result. 

There are many suturing techniques that can be used, but our physicians’ training and techniques allow them to give you the best possible outcome for any scarring that may occur. Each with a background in trauma and reconstruction, Dr. Sieffert and Dr. Donaldson’s extensive training makes them uniquely qualified to deal with laceration repair.

Hours of Operation

Follow These Steps:

If you or a loved one need medical attention from our clinic, the first step is to call our office. During our normal business hours, call 614-442-7610 to speak to a staff member directly to coordinate your visit. Please have the following information available:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Home address
  • Telephone number
  • Email address
  • Location of injury on the body
  • Circumstance of injury
  • Date and time the injury was sustained, and
  • any other injuries. 

You will then be asked to email 2 to 3 clear, well-lit photos of the injury from different angles, from both close-up and further away, for triage purposes. A physician, either Dr. Donaldson or Dr. Sieffert, will reach out to you shortly after with instructions for definitive management.

Treatment Fee

Our surgeons’ fee will range from $1000 to $1300, due at time of treatment. Insurance will not be accepted at this time.

Basic Laceration Care

If you are bleeding, apply light constant pressure for 5 minutes (don’t peek). When bleeding subsides, apply a clean, moistened gauze (moist paper towel if gauze unavailable) to the area and wrap or cover as necessary.

If bleeding does not subside, please do not wait go to your nearest emergency department for immediate care.

Important, Please Read:

This suture clinic is not suitable for serious injuries involving multiple body areas, very large or deep lacerations, and any injury with uncontrollable bleeding.  If this describes the nature of your injury, please go to the nearest emergency department immediately. If you are unsure of the extent of your injuries, your plastic surgeon may recommend seeking out the closest emergency department during your initial triage.

Finally, we ask that if you or your loved ones have any signs or symptoms of illness (fever, cough, difficulty breathing, sore throat), please utilize the nearest emergency room or urgent care. As a precautionary measure, we will be taking forehead temperatures at the time of arrival. We hope to keep all of our patients and providers healthy so we may continue to serve the greater Columbus community.

We look forward to helping you with your injury in the most efficient and safe manner possible.  Please reach out if you think we can be of service!
