At CoreHealth Medical Care, our medical professionals are able to facilitate minor surgical procedures. Most of these procedures only last less than an hour or a few hours to complete. They relatively don’t require a long recovery or downtime so the patient can be sent home right after the procedure.
We offer minor surgery services for:
- Abscess Drainage
With this procedure, the surgeon will locate the abscess and incise the skin over it. Afterward, a drainage catheter will then be inserted to drain the pus from the affected area. The entire procedure can take around 2 minutes or up to an hour.
- Circumcision (Male)
Circumcision is a procedure that removes the foreskin from the male’s penis. There is no required age for circumcision. It is quick, requires no stitches and will heal within 7 to 10 days.
- Ingrown Toenail
Depending on the severity of the ingrown toenail, the procedure may range from the removal of the pierced nail to nail avulsion and matrixectomy. Complex procedures will often require the use of local anesthesia and procedures may last for several minutes.
Lumpectomy is recommended for those with malignant breast tumor or breast cancer. In this procedure, the tumor and some tissues surrounding it are removed. The procedure may last from 15 to around 40 minutes.
- Skin Tag Removal
To remove skin tags, doctors may cut the tags off using a surgical knife or scalpel. Afterward, stitching may be necessary, depending on how deep the cut is.
