Minor Surgery

Most doctors perform minor surgery for their patients and we have specialist surgeons in regular attendance.

What’s on Offer?

Most doctors perform minor surgery including:

  • Simple lesion removals (moles and cysts)
  • Partial and full thickness skin grafts
  • Nail wedge resection
  • Incision and drainage
  • Punch Biopsy
  • Diagnostic uterine sampling procedures (pipelle)
  • Insertion of intrauterine devices

These procedures can be done at specialist clinics, but are often available more quickly, and at a more affordable price, here at PFHC. If you wish to have any surgical procedure paid for by medical insurance, please first check with your insurance company regarding cover. It is important to see your doctor at PFHC before booking your surgery.

Please note that your doctor will discuss the full cost, if any, of any surgery at your first visit. If extra materials are required at the time of surgery (e.g. more suture material), or more time is involved, then the price will alter accordingly.

Book your Appointment

When you phone to make an appointment, please let the receptionist know what your appointment is for, or what procedure you are interested in, and they will make the appointment accordingly. An initial consult would occur before any procedure.
