What procedure can a medical doctors do to correct an injury to tissue?

Physicians can correct an injury several different ways depending on what the injury is and what tissue is involved.
Some examples:
  • If there is a tear in the skin, then a medical doctor would put stiches in to bring the torn edges together. This aides in healing and less scar formation.
  • For a heart attack the physician might give medications and possibly perform surgery to remove obstructed blood vessels.
  • For a stroke the physician has medications and help from occupational and physical therapists.
  • A boil would be lanced and drained and the person might be given medication and instruction as to how to treat the site.
