The doctors at Medpods Medical Centres are experienced in organising and performing a variety of minor procedures.
These procedures involve conditions or health areas that need to be addressed yet do not require a visit to hospital.
Some may be of an urgent matter such as the stitching of a cut or treatment of an ingrown toenail. Others may not be causing immediate pain but still need to be addressed such as the insertion or removal of a contraceptive implant or freezing of a skin lesion.
Minor procedures performed at Medpods Medical Centres include:
- Skin biopsy

Well equipped treatment rooms and a dedicated nursing room ensure your care is of the highest quality.
Our doctors work with registered nurses who assist with after-treatment care and wound dressing following minor procedures.
Our doctors and nurses take the time to explain the steps of every procedure. This includes what to expect afterwards, the care required once you go home and any follow-ups that may be required.
A great team of support staff are on hand to answer any other general queries and assist medical staff.
All minor surgical procedures require an appointment. This is to ensure Medpods Medical Centres is properly prepared with staff and equipment on-hand to assist.
