Incisions and Drainage

A lot of incision and drainage procedures involve draining areas of the skin and subcutaneous tissues; however, there are some cases where the surgeon goes deeper into the fascia, muscle, bone, joint, or internal organ. When reviewing the operative report, it is important to understand the intent of the procedure, how many procedures are being completed, the depth of the procedure, and the type of device that is being used during the treatment.
