At Advanced Family Medical Care, we offer office-based minor surgical procedures. These are considered outpatient procedures since they do not entail an overnight or extended stay at the hospital. In many cases they involve local anesthesia, and you are able to head home soon afterward.
Common minor surgeries include skin procedures such as removal of warts, skin tags, and excess scar tissue, and joint or trigger point injections. Trigger point injections are given in the back to alleviate pain caused by trigger points in the form of small knots in the muscles or fascia tissue. Most patients experience immediate relief, although it can take up to 72 hours in some cases for the injections to be effective.
If you have questions about office-based minor surgical procedures or would like to schedule an appointment, call us at 972-985-8000.
