Many of our GPs are trained to completed a number of minor procedures including
- INGROWING TOENAIL REMOVAL
- SKIN CYST/TAG REMOVAL
- MOLE REMOVAL
They are ably assisted in theatre by our experiences Nurses and Health Care assistants.
All patients have a pre-op consultation with the operating GP first. If the doctor feels it necessary to operate the patient will be booked in to the minor ops clinic. The doctor will explain the procedure to the patient and why it is necessary. The patient will have the opportunity to ask any questions to reassure them about the procedure and when they are happy they will be asked to sign a consent form.
Most patients will be able to go about their normal business the following day but they may be advised to ask somebody to drive them home.
All operations are performed in our treatment room under local anaesthetic (numbing of the affected area while the patient remains awake).
