Minor Surgeries and Procedures

A minor surgical procedure, or office procedure, typically includes any procedure that can be safely performed in an outpatient setting, without the use of general anaesthesia or the need for respiratory assistance.

It may include urgent procedures such as management and suturing of simple open wounds, or planned (elective)  procedures such as removals of lumps and bumps in the skin.
