Certain minor procedures can be done in our office.
Westerville Surgical Specialists has a treatment room on site where minor procedures can be done. For example, lipomas or cysts can be removed by injecting a local anesthetic around the area to be excised and then closed afterwards with sutures (stitches.) No sedation is required.
Biopsies can also be obtained as an in office procedure depending on the nature and location of the lump. Your physician will do a thorough exam during your consultation to determine whether or not the procedure can be done on site or whether it is more appropriate for the operating room.
