As far as I know, only doctors are allowed to stitch and staple. I have assisted with stitching and stapeling and actually got to put some staples in a guy but that's another story.

As far as the needles/threads, yes there are special needles used for this althugh the most special thing about them is the sterility. There are a couple types of thread. One thread is disolvable and the other is not. Aside from that I don't know much about the thread. Probably not the general sewing thread you pick up at Wal-Mart though.

Best advice, if you need stitches, go to the hospital and see a doc.
