Pilonidal sinus surgery
A pilonidal sinus is a tunnel in the skin located within the natal cleft. A pilonidal sinus contains hair, dirt, and debris. It can cause severe pain and can often become infected. The treatment usually involves surgery.
Removal of lumps
Fatty lumps (lipoma) and large cyst (sebaceous cysts) are the commonest lumps that occur throughout the body. These are not cancerous and safe to be left alone if small or have no symptoms. The treatment involves removal by surgery for symptomatic lumps.
Ingrown nail surgery
Ingrown nail is a condition where the side of nail grows into the flesh, commonly affecting the great toe. Patients can present with pain, redness, swelling and infection in that area. If it is a recurrent problem your doctor may advice a surgical excision.
Haemorrhoids, also known as piles are lumps that occur inside and around the anal passage. They happen as a results of weakness and engorgement of veins within the anal canal resulting in protruding lumps, bleeding, pain or discomfort.
Most haemorrhoids can be managed without surgery, however in late stages surgery gives the best outcome. We do offer rubber banding treatment for smaller internal haemorrhoids too. Note of caution: if you do experience bleeding from the back passage, do not always assume it is haemorrhoids. Please seek advice from your general practitioner.
