Removal of most skin lesions or cancers, moles, toenail surgery etc

Minor Surgery is carried out in our purpose built theatre.

Your doctor will advise you prior to your surgery of the type of procedure which best suits your situation and any possible complications, scarring etc.  

The tissue is sent to the Southern Community Laboratory for diagnostic purposes

and your doctor will discuss these results with you when you return for your follow up appointment.  

In some cases a further surgical procedure may be required to ensure all of the affected tissue has been removed.

This may be done at the surgery or referred on to a specialist for further review.

Dr Doug Hill provides skin cancer surgery for private paying patients and some surgeries are free under the PHO Skin Lesion GPSI (General Practitioner with Special Interest) contract funded through the Southern PHO. (Dependant on funding availability).

Fees may vary* - Check with your doctor prior to your surgery for an approximate cost.
