Minor surgery procedures performed at Renew Skin & Health Clinic private hospital are also available for the people coming from Northampton as we benefit from the latest technology used in medicine and fully qualified practitioners and also consultant surgeons with years of experience in the field.
The minor surgical procedures ensure the complete private health treatment of lipomas, sebaceous cysts, ingrown toenails, actinic keratosis and other skin lesions. All the procedures are performed under local anesthetic, being thus painless, risks and complications are minimized, due to your medical history and current health assessment made by our GP or private dermatologist, and the scarring is minimal, even with the surgery that requires stitches (sutures).
Our skin specialists use the shave biopsy, if the lipoma, sebaceous cyst or actinic keratosis is benign, however, if after the GP examination, you are further referred to a private dermatologist, you may be required to undergo an incisional biopsy procedure, that implies the removal of some of the lesion’s adjacent tissue in order to determine the existence of cancerous cells or not. We put great emphasis on a correct and accurate diagnosis, as the best and most successful private health treatment is determined by it.
As for the ingrown toenail condition, the minor surgery implies two techniques of treatment: partial and total avulsion, or removal. Depending on the degree of severity of the ingrown toenail, podiatrists will recommend the method that will ensure best results in correcting the incorrectly grown nail. This procedure is also performed under local anesthetic, is safe and effective, the specialist also giving you advice on how to properly ensure post-surgical care of the affected area.
But each patient develops these dermatological conditions based on certain factors, that’s why a first private skin consultation with a GP or private dermatologist at Renew Skin & Health Clinic headquarters is mandatory, to accurately set a correct diagnose. After that, our specialist will take care of everything, so even if you are coming from Northampton, be sure that the journey to our cosmetic center will be worth your while in efficiently getting rid of your problems!
