Booking a minor surgical procedure can be extremely difficult. Many GPs are generally overworked and find it difficult to find the time to provide a regular surgical clinic. In addition, GPs are only funded for certain surgical procedures. Of particular note, funding is only available for necessary treatment: not based on want but need.
At Duality Health we are not constrained by these issues. Our staff have been undertaking surgical procedures for over 10 years and been trained to exacting NHS standards.
What can we help remove:
- Cysts – e.g. epidermal/ sebaceous cysts
- Skin lesions at patient preference e.g. age spots and other benign lesions
- Cryosurgery (freezing) of warts, verrucae, skin tags
- Callous formation, corns
- Ingrown toenails
- Draining of cysts, ganglions
Aftercare appointment and suture removal included.
All removed skin lesions can be sent for pathological examination at additional cost.
- Aspiration and injection of joints
With today’s waiting times to see a GP, a sore joint that needs a steroid injection often can’t wait until “next week”.
As long as it is safe and clinically appropriate, we can inject joints that have previously benefitted from steroid injections. To alleviate your pain we aim to make this possible at your initial consultation.
