At Thornhill Clinic, we can confidently remove lesions from various parts of the body, including the face. The most suitable removal method will be determined based on your preferences, the location of the lesion, and its size. Our goal is to provide personalized care that meets your specific needs. With excision of lesions, we offer the option to send the tissue samples to the histopathology lab for accurate diagnosis and to exclude any underlying sinister causes. Your well-being and peace of mind are our utmost priorities. In addition, we offer steroid injections for joint inflammation and pain caused by conditions such as osteoarthritis. This treatment involves injecting steroids into the affected joint, providing relief from chronic inflammation. .

We are experienced in administering steroid injections to various joints, including:

– Shoulder

– Elbow (Golfers and Tennis)

– Wrist

– Carpal tunnel

– Knee

– Heels for plantar fasciitis

Furthermore, our clinic provides comprehensive post-operative wound care services. This includes dressing changes, suture or staple removal, and ongoing assistance to ensure optimal healing and recovery. If you have undergone an operation abroad or elsewhere in the UK and require guidance on wound care, we are here to help. Our team is readily available to provide expert advice and support.

Any questions

Minor Surgery refers to a range of medical procedures that are minimally invasive and are typically performed on an outpatient basis.

Minor surgery includes procedures such as skin lesion removal, ingrown toenail treatment, wound stitching, lump excisions, cyst drainage, and more.

Depending on the procedure and its complexity, local anesthesia or numbing agents may be used to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

The duration of minor surgery varies based on the type of procedure, but most are relatively quick and can be completed within minutes to an hour.

Local anesthesia is used to minimize pain during the procedure. You may experience mild discomfort after the procedure, which is usually manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Downtime varies depending on the procedure. Some procedures may require minimal recovery time, while others might require a few days of rest and care.

While minor surgery is generally safe, there are potential risks such as infection, bleeding, scarring, and allergic reactions. Your healthcare provider will discuss these risks with you.

Scarring depends on the type of procedure and your body’s healing process. Your healthcare provider will aim to minimize scarring and provide guidance on scar care.

In most cases, you can drive yourself home after minor surgery as long as you are not under the influence of sedation. However, it’s a good idea to have someone accompany you if possible.

You might be advised to wear comfortable clothing and to have someone available to drive you home if sedation is involved.
