Minor Surgery Clinics
Dr Watts performs all the minor surgery procedures within the practice
A wide variety of procedures are performed:-
- Skin biopsies
- Aspirations of cysts and joint swellings.
- Injections into a variety of joints and bursae
- Injections for tendonitis problems
- Injections for carpal tunnel syndrome
Please note that excision of e.g moles,skin tags etc cannot be done for purely cosmetic reasons (ref: Surrey PCT Guidelines on Low Priority Procedures).
If your condition requires and injection / aspiration you will be advised to book an appointment with Dr Watts in one of his routine surgeries. If you are having a joint /soft tissue injection please be aware that you will need to rest the injected area for 3-4 days.
If your condition needs “surgery” you will be contacted in a few days with an appointment for one of Dr Watts’ Minor Surgery clinics held jointly with our Healthcare Assistant on Wednesday mornings. There is sometimes a wait of 1-2 months for Minor Surgery.
