Minor Surgery

We offer a range of minor surgery procedures for the removal of benign skin lesions and lumps inc sebaceous cysts. All skin cancers are normally referred to Leighton hospital. A referral from a GP is usually needed.This service is provided by four doctors: Dr. Gowda, Dr. Gunawardena, Dr. Rosson, and Dr. Whittaker. Minor surgery clinics are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursday – however, that this may change from time to time.

Please note that this is not a service that patients can freely book into – you can only access this by being referred – Recently we have started accepting referrals from other surgeries that are within our area.

Appointments are generally 15 minutes long.

Once your referral has been triaged by Dr. Gowda and confirmed, you will be offered an appointment in a separate clinic to the days listed above.

If you are unable to keep an appointment, please call the surgery to rearrange as we often have a waiting list and it will help us prevent appointments going to waste.
