The practice, led by board-certified surgeon Dr. Volshteyn, now helps young patients who require medical attention after an incident that lead to a tear in the skin. While emergency room physicians and pediatricians recommend addressing a child’s laceration within an eight-hour timeframe, Atlantic Surgical Associates PA utilizes advanced techniques that allow the team to repair skin cuts even after 24 hours.

As part of its recently launched emergency laceration repair services, Dr. Volshteyn is available to meet the child and their parents at one of the emergency rooms in Monmouth County. After examining the severity of the wound, the surgeon would recommend the most feasible course of treatment for the child’s injury.
“The procedure is similar to repairing a tear in clothing,” a spokesperson for the practice says. “Pediatricians, emergency room physicians, and surgeons usually repair lacerations. The main goals are to stop bleeding, prevent infection, preserve function, and restore appearance.”
Atlantic Surgical Associates PA notes that most insurance policies cover the repair of lacerations in children by a sub-specialist. Parents who are willing to have their child’s cut treated by a surgeon but lack insurance coverage can opt for an all-cash payment with the practice that includes a consultation, surgical treatment, and a three-month follow-up.
The team at the practice advises that cuts that are small and have only impacted a child’s skin generally need minor treatment at home. More severe tears that have affected the tendon, nerves, blood vessels, muscle, or bone, however, are likely to require emergency medical assistance, the specialists note.
Atlantic Surgical Associates PA recommends parents seek emergency laceration repair services should their child’s wound bleed heavily, involves fat or muscle tissue, or affect the proper functioning of the surrounding area. They are also encouraged to contact the practice if there is dirt and debris in the wound, or if the cut extends through the nose, mouth, ears, or other vital organs of their child.
