In-Office Minor Surgery
While most of the surgeries performed by our physicians are done at a hospital or surgical center, we also have a surgical suite within the office for minor procedures. This provides our patients the convenience and safety of a sterile environment in the office to provide surgical procedures including, laser wart removal, hammer toe correction, foreign body removal, hardware (surgical screw) removal, ingrown toenail procedures, drainage of infections, and laceration (cut) repairs. These procedures can be done either under local anesthesia or IV anesthesia. Local anesthesia is numbing of the surgical site with injections while the patient is awake. IV anesthesia or twilight is given through an IV line to provide relaxation and sedation.
