GP Doctors at Central Health Sunshine can perform minor procedures in well-equipped treatment rooms and on occasions, a nurse will assist. Our Centre uses disposable instruments. We offer full skin checks and lesion removal.
Some of the minor procedures we provide are:
- Excisions of skin cancers and lesions (including lipomas, cysts, etc.)
- Resections of ingrown toenails
- Removal of foreign bodies
- Removal and planting inserts
- Contraceptive depts administration
- Drainage of cysts or abscesses

- Treatment of warts and papilloma with liquid nitrogen
Our equipment is either disposable or sterilised by offsite autoclaving to the required standards. Minor procedures, such as excisions and suturing require a longer consult.
