Minor Surgery

 

Appointments for minor surgical consultations and procedures are made by referral from your Family doctor and take place on the following clinic floors:

First floor for Doctor Zoe Filyk  and Dr. Lynn Peterson.

There are no restrictions as to what you can eat or drink the night before, or on the day of your minor surgery.  The procedures are done under local anesthesia; this means that you will be able to drive home afterwards, in most cases. 

Skin Preparation:  Please do not use hair spray, or mosturizer. Child Care:  Please do not bring children to the clinic the day of your surgical procedure.

Procedures are usually 30-60 minutes, and up to 90 minutes maximum depending on the condition being treated. 

All procedures need a 6-8 weeks follow up appointment to review the pathology results. These Appointments could be virtual over the telephone or in person with the nurse if there is a requirement to remove stitches or wound management.

Appointment cancelations:  Appointments are in high demand and an early cancellation will allow another patient to be seen. Any cancellations under 48 hours will be considered a no show. The fee for no show for a Surgery, is 100$. If multiple appointments are missed without cancellation you may be asked to seek medical attention at another facility.
