Got a problem that minor surgery may solve? Discuss it with your GP in the first instance to ensure the correct treatment plan and referrals are made.
Some MHC doctors are also skilled surgeons and they carry out minor procedures in our state-of-the-art surgical theatre.
These procedures include (but are not limited to):
MHC carries out vasectomies on both registered and non-registered patients. Book here.
To enable the fast and efficient removal of any suspect skin lesion, MHC has a GP with special interest in skin lesion surgery available. No waiting for an appointment at Dunedin Public Hospital!
If you have a skin lesion your doctor will refer you to Dr Peter Gent for an examination and to ensure removal is required. If it is, you will be booked into MHC’s minor surgery theatre.
If you suffer from heavy menstrual bleeding, bleeding between periods, post-menopausal bleeding, or endometrial cells on cervical smears your doctor may recommend you for a pipelle biopsy.
Anyone may use this free service, not just MHC patients, as there is a GP on staff who is trained in this. The procedure takes only 30 minutes and can be booked at reception.
