Minor Procedures

We are equipped to perform minor surgery. anything that requires further investigating will be referred to the relevant specialists.

Minor procedures may result in an out-of-pocket cost for the patient even those with a health care card.

There may also be a cost which Pathology will allocate for the investigation into the sample which will have been removed. this cost is fully reimbursed by Medicare.

We offer the following minor procedures:

  • Excisions of skin cancers and lesions (including lipomas, cysts, etc.)
  • Resections of ingrown toenails
  • Removal of foreign bodies
  • Implanon insertion and removal
  • Drainage of cysts or abscesses
  • Injections of joints
  • Hormone Implants
  • Treatment of warts and papillomas with liquid nitrogen

Our equipment is either disposable or sterilised by autoclaving to the required standards.
