Minor Operations:

We hold regular minor surgery sessions which enables us to deal with a large number of skin lesions that would otherwise have to be referred to hospital. These include cysts, skin tags, certain moles and lipomata (fatty lumps).

We also excise ingrowing toenails and perform many joint injections. Dr Salim runs these minor surgery sessions, it is important that you see Dr Salim in a routine appointment prior to booking a minor surgery appointment.
