Here at DNF Medical Centers we have a number of rooms dedicated to providing our patients with minor surgeries onsite. Patients do not have to be transported to another facility or lose valuable time as with traditional clinics. Our staff of experienced surgeons are available to conduct minor surgeries as needed.
What Is a Minor Surgery?
In general terms, a minor surgery is a procedure in which the use of anesthesia or respiratory assistance is not necessary. Local anesthesia can be utilized as it is very light and patients remain awake.
If a patient has a minor surgery that requires local anesthesia, please keep in mind that some discomfort will be felt when the injection is administered, but once the anesthesia takes effect, the area will become numb.
Types of Conditions That Can Be Treated With a Minor Surgery:
- Wart removal: this type of procedure is done fairly quickly and can be accomplished in a variety of ways (freezing, burning, etc.).
- Ingrown toenails
- Trigger Point Injections
- Penile and Vaginal Warts
- Mole Removal
- Incision and drainage of an Abscess
- Skin tag removal
- Skin Biopsy collection
- Joint injections
- Cyst and abscess removal
- Treatment fo precancerous and cancerous skin lesions
- Burn treatment
- Spider vein removal
- Hemorrhoid treatment
- Anal Fissure
- Fatty Tumors
How Long Do Minor Surgeries Take To Complete?
The length of time to finish your minor surgery depends on the procedure chosen. Some procedures can take as little as five minutes, while others can take a little over an hour. Ask your doctor for an estimate of how long they think your treatment will last.
What Side Effects May I Feel Post-treatment?
Depending on the type of minor surgery you have done, typically patients will be able to walk right out of the office and resume their daily activities. In some cases, an over the counter pain medication may be prescribed and the doctors will advise against physical exertion until the area is healed.
