What to expect

All procedures such as skin excisions are done under local anaesthetic and apart from the injection of the local anaesthetic are generally comfortable and painless procedures. The worst part of the procedure is the initial few seconds when the local is put in, the rest of the procedure is then pain free. In most cases the procedure is less troublesome than a trip to the dentist.

All injectable agents such as the local anaesthetic and sutures are single use items. Procedures are done using high quality surgical instruments that are sterilised to meet all appropriate standards regarding sterilization procedures. Fitzpatrick House has internal audit and tracking procedures meeting all appropriate standards. Linen is obtained through the hospital linen service and in most instances single use products are also used.
