Minor Surgery Q & A
What minor surgeries are available?
Dallas Family Medicine specializes in primary care for the family and sometimes, surgery is necessary to protect your health. The office is equipped for a range of minor surgical procedures so you can get prompt, convenient care without seeing a specialist.
The team is trained in repairing mild to moderate wounds, including torn earlobes and acute lacerations. They can also remove skin lesions, skin tags, and treat a variety of cysts.
If you have an acute injury or an unusual skin growth, talk to the team about your options for surgical treatment.
Do I need cyst removal?
Cysts are abnormal growths that can appear almost anywhere on your body. They consist of a soft tissue sac filled with fluid, air, or other types of tissue.
Cysts are benign (noncancerous) most of the time, but that doesn’t mean they can be ignored. Untreated cysts can be painful, particularly if they get infected. Removing a cyst often requires minor surgery, but it can eliminate pain and infection to keep you healthy.
The team at Dallas Family Medicine specializes in cyst removal. They regularly treat common cysts, including:
- Ganglion cysts
- Pilonidal cysts
- Sebaceous cysts
Treatment varies depending on the type, size, and location of your cyst. Your doctor examines the cyst, then recommends draining, surgical removal, or a combination of treatments.
Should I go to the emergency room for a laceration?
Lacerations are cuts in your skin that expose the tissue underneath. They’re often jagged, irregular injuries that open skin and cause bleeding. Most people suffer a laceration at some point in their lives, and they can be serious if left untreated.
If you have a laceration that’s bleeding excessively or continues bleeding for more than 20 minutes, you need to seek immediate medical care — but you might not have to visit the emergency room.
The team at Dallas Family Medicine is equipped to care for emergency lacerations. They work quickly to stop bleeding, clean the wound, and close it to reduce your risk of infection.
Dallas Family Medicine offers surgical care as an alternative to hospitals and the emergency room. Call the office to book the next available appointment or learn more about available services.
