Neurosurgery Medical Student Interest Group Suture Lab

Residents instruct medical students in suture lab.

Residents from the Department of Neurosurgery recently guided medical students through a suture lab.

Suturing is a process by which physicians close wounds, repair tissue, and promote healing. Some subjects commonly used for practice during these labs include bananas, oranges, and raw chicken.

Suture lab sessions provide medical students with important opportunities to exercise their skills and hone their techniques.
