Minor Surgery Theatre
Our Doctors perform minor surgery at the clinic's minor surgery theatre, under local anaesthetic.
Minor Surgery

Our Doctors provide a weekly minor surgery theatre (using local anaesthesia) for a range of procedures, including skin lesion biopsy and excision, skin cyst removal, cosmetic excision of skin lesions, vasectomies, insertion and removal of Jadelle implants, and a range of other procedures. You may book an appointment to discuss any planned surgery with our doctors.

Cosmetic removal of benign moles with virtually no scarring.

Cosmetic Radiosurgery by the Ellman Surgitron® system allows the removal of cosmetic lumps and bumps on the face and body with virtually no risk of scarring.  All treatments are performed by experienced Cosmetic Physicians. Previously, benign lesions removed for cosmetic reasons on the face were removed by surgical excision leaving a linear scar. With the Ellman Surgitron® only the lesion itself is removed, after a small amount of anaesthetic administered by a very fine needle under the lesion. Immediately after excision, there is simply a small, raw non-bleeding surface no bigger than the original surface area of the lesion. This forms a scab and 7-10 days later there is a fresh healthy layer of new skin which over time blends in to the normal skin colour.
