Frequently asked questions...
The best starting point for any medical issue is to book a GP consultation to discuss your needs. This will allow the GP to assess whether you would benefit from a minor surgery at Family Health Clinics or otherwise.
Medicare may cover some or all of the fees of a minor surgery. Often there are out of pocket fees for pathology or additional investigation required post-surgery. Once you know what minor surgery you require, you can find out whether there will be gap fees.
Although laparoscopy only requires a small incision, it requires general anaesthetic and therefore it is a procedure that cannot be performed in a GP practice. A consultation with our GP can refer you to the suitable expert for a laparoscopy.
In short, most procedures that can be carried out on superficial tissues are classified as minor surgery. They can be performed with standard equipment and with nothing more than a local anaesthetic. Recovery from minor surgery is localised and low risk. Family Health Clinics have experienced GPs to assist with most minor surgery needs.
Minor surgeries we can perform at the clinic include, and are not limited to, abnormal skin removal, cryotherapy, biopsy, wound stitching and more. It is best to discuss your minor surgery needs during a GP consultation.
