Dr Davison undertakes Minor Surgery sessions. There are approximately one per month. You may see any Dr to discuss any medical condition, but if minor surgery is suggested and you wish to proceed, sometimes you may be asked to see Dr Davison, to discuss the matter in more detail, before proceeding.
Please note that funding for "cosmetic" surgery is extremely limited and generally only granted if their are special circumstances, following an appeal to the Individual Funding Requests Panel, of the CCG. Therefore, skin tags blemishes and moles, which are not causing functional impairment, or are not considered pathological, cannot be removed on the NHS.
Some of the typical operations that are undertaken are as follows:
-Incision and drainage of abscesses (tends to be done ad-hoc as they present, unless they are too large to manage under local anaethetic)
-Lipomas, where causing functional impairment
-Punch biopsies to clarify diagnosis
-Shave excision of seborrhoeic warts, where causing functional problem
-Suspected dysplastic naevi (not suspected melanomas, which are referred to a Dermatologist)
-In severe cases, where medical treatment has failed and there are e.g. occupational implications, curettage of warts.
Additionally, cryotherapy to warts and seborrhoeic warts and skin tags may be offered in normal surgery appointments, in selected cases, if appropriate by Dr Davison.
