Minor Surgeries

Minor Surgeries

In addition to routine check-ups and medical treatments, our doctors can perform minor surgical procedures on-site at the hospital. This means that you don’t have to travel far for an important procedure like surgery. With our community surgery and quick return time, we offer the convenience of treatment that suits your schedule. Our patients love not having to wait around at their scheduled appointment just so they can get medical help when it’s convenient for them.

All procedures at our hospital are undertaken with the utmost care, using only top-quality equipment and sterilization techniques. Your doctor will take great pains to explain whatever procedure you’re about to go through before it begins so that there aren’t any surprises for either of us! Every patient deserves a consultation where he/she feels respected as an individual.

A comprehensive list of procedures includes, but is not limited to:

  • Excision of skin cancers
  • Skin biopsy
  • Excision of cyst
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Trigger finger
  • Sclerotherapy to eliminate spider veins on the legs
  • Incision and drainage of abscesses
  • Triage and suturing of lacerations
  • Removal of foreign bodies
  • Pathology collection
  • ECGs
  • Triage and suturing of lacerations

You can have minor surgery without it taking all day. It’s not a matter of walking in and out, but many times the medical procedure itself will be quicker than people imagine – especially if there are pre-surgery restrictions on what you’re able to do beforehand that might slow things down for your visit with us.

Minor Surgery for Ingrown toenail

The most common type of ingrown toenail is the mild case. If you have never had an issue with this before, then your doctor might just recommend a few types of over-the-counter medications and/or topical ointments that can be bought at any pharmacy for home use. In more severe cases where surgery may eventually become necessary – even as early as a diagnosis. St Ives Medical Centre always tailors its treatment plan based on what works best suited towards everyone’s needs.

The surgery involves removing the nail or section of your toe where there’s an issue, as well as ensuring that skin can heal without getting irritated. You’ll be able to walk immediately after this procedure and wear shoes within 48 hours!

You can be sure that our doctors are highly experienced in resolving common health issues through surgical intervention.
