Minor In-Office Surgery
At Full Circle Health we have the ability to perform many minor surgeries in our office, thus preventing you from having to see a specialist. Dr Frye and Dr Shreder have had many year of experience working in Arizona and dealing with different types of skin legions. With a trained eye they can determine the best course of treatment and save you precious time waiting to see a specialist. Many times during a yearly exam we catch a suspicious mole that we can biopsy right on the spot if needed.
The most common surgery we do here are skin cancer surgery.
- Cryosurgery – If a pre cancer is found we will able to perform cryosurgery which will leave much less scarring than other treatments.
- Shave Biopsies – If a skin cancer is suspected we can perform a shave biopsy which removes the suspected cancer then the specimen is sent to a laboratory for analysis.
- Excisional Biopsy – If a cancer is indeed present we can then excise the cancer which requires stitches. Then the new specimen is sent to the lab to ensure the entire cancer was removed.
Other common surgeries done in the office include:
- Toenail removal
- Sebaceous cyst removal
- Draining of abscesses.
