At Queensgate Medical Centre, our team of Doctors and Nurses are all trained in minor surgical procedures.
The most common procedures performed at Queensgate Medical Centre include; excision of skin lesions and tags, removal of ingrown toenails, suturing of cuts and lacerations, plastering of undisplaced fractured bones, iron infusions, intravenous rehydration and Implanon insertion.
Skin lesions must be assessed by your treating doctor prior to booking an excision. The majority of skin lesions are sent to pathology for testing with results available usually within four working days. A follow-up appointment is made to discuss results and remove sutures.
Suturing of cuts and lacerations are usually an emergency procedure and we try our best to accommodate these. Please call ahead so we know to expect you. One of our registered nurses will assess you on arrival and decide on the best course of action. In some cases, you may be advised to go straight to the Emergency Department at Fiona Stanley Hospital.
If you've had an accident in the workplace, your consult and treatment will be billed to your employer usually under a Worker's Compensation claim. If your claim is deemed as not falling under Worker's Compensation, your account will be charged to you and Medicare. If you have any questions, please ask to speak with our Practice Manager.
When booking a Minor Procedure you will be asked to book a double (long) appointment.
