Suturer is the skill associated with the Suturing labor. Suturers are responsible for closing wounds using thread at a hospital. Additionally, in the latest version, dwarves who discuss or ponder the topic "Suturing" as scholars will gain points in this skill.

Suturer skill level is related to the speed at which the labor is completed and rate of infectionVerify. The longer that the wound is open, the more likely bleeding out and infection become. The quality, type or dye of the thread is not related to outcome. Suturers will even use adamantine strands for this purpose. Severed limbs are beyond your suturers' abilities, even at Legendary+5.

Suturers put your fortress' injured back together as part of the health care industry.
