Hello. I recently accidentally cut my right hand below my index with a knife. The wound was deep (1 cm). When I went to the hospital the doctor asked me to move my finger and so I did.Then the wound was stitched.
My question is can the blood vessels that were cut beneath the skin heal themselves?
Sure. Our bodies are wonderful. We are making good collateral circulation all the time.

Skin and vessels heal like tendons and flesh. The only part of our bodies that do not heal rapidly are nerves. Nerves don't repair very quickly and sometimes not at all. Your liver is more amazing than that it regenerates new cells and is the only organ that can regenerate itself

Thank both of you my friends. I feel much relieved now :)
