Many state-of-the-art plastic surgery procedures are performed on an outpatient basis at the Day Surgery Clinic. Resources or consultations required before, during, and after the day surgery procedure and recovery are immediately available to patients.
On-site pathologists, radiologists, and other specialists facilitate multidisciplinary decision-making with the greatest possible amount of information and knowledge available. Ultimately, this approach saves patients valuable time and promotes optimal outcomes. Sophisticated equipment and quality care from the division’s physicians are a vital part of the division’s success.
Surgeries performed on an outpatient basis include: removal of moles, cysts, lipomas (fatty tumors), scars, and malignant tumors, such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma; and Mohs surgery, also known as micrographic surgery. Most surgical procedures are done under local anesthesia.
