Minor surgery covers procedures that require local anaesthetic,
rather than more major operations that require a general
anaesthetic. Minor surgery procedures can be performed in my
surgery whereas major operations requiring general anaesthetic need
to be performed in a hospital.
Common minor surgery procedures include things like ingrown
nails, removing moles or skin lesions,
ganglions, cysts and skin tumours.
Minor surgery also covers injecting joints and tendons with
steroids to treat chronic pain from arthritis, and strains of
tendons and ligaments following injury.
For things like ingrown nails, removing moles or skin lesions,
ganglions, cysts and skin tumours I use special
suturing techniques to achieve excellent cosmetic
Cost is dependent on the procedure itself and materials used.
Somewhere between $150 - $300 is usual.
Costs for injecting joints and tendons range from $80 upwards,
depending on the site involved.
