About BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures

At Midwest Orthopedics at Rush, we are proud to use the latest advanced wound closure system called BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures. This new wound closure offers many benefits to our patients. First, BandGrip helps the surgical team close incisions faster, which means patients spend less time under anesthesia and are less susceptible to the complications of surgery. Second, the closure is transparent, so patients and surgeons can watch the pinched skin underneath the bandage heal and check for any infections. Third, there is no pain in removing BandGrip like there often is with sutures and staples. In some cases, patients can even remove BandGrip themselves, avoiding an unnecessary visit back to the office.  And finally, the cosmetic results are better compared to other closure methods.
