What do you need to know when attending a Minor Surgery Clinic?
The doctor will assess and diagnose the problem and determine suitability for possible procedures.

Treatment may take place during the same appointment, but occasionally another appointment may need to be scheduled to carry out the procedure.
During treatment several techniques may be used such as:

Where necessary, you may need to return for stitch removal in the weeks following the procedure, our doctors will advise you on this.
