At Kaysville Clinic, we offer minor surgeries as part of our comprehensive family medicine practice. Our team of experienced physicians is trained to perform minor surgical procedures in a safe and efficient manner, ensuring the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Skin Procedures

Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it is exposed to various external factors on a daily basis. This can result in various skin conditions that may require minor surgical intervention to treat and improve the overall health of our skin. At Kaysville Clinic, we offer a range of minor skin procedures such as:

  • Skin biopsies: This procedure involves removing a small sample of skin for examination under a microscope. It is commonly used to diagnose skin conditions such as skin cancer, rashes, and infections.
  • Mole removal: Moles are usually harmless, but they may become a cosmetic concern or pose a risk of developing into skin cancer. We offer safe and effective mole removal procedures to improve the appearance of your skin and prevent potential health risks.
  • Wart removal: Warts are small growths on the skin caused by a virus. They can be unsightly and may cause discomfort, especially if they are located on the feet or hands. Our physicians can safely remove warts using various techniques such as freezing, burning, or cutting.
  • Cyst removal: Cysts are abnormal sacs filled with fluid or semi-solid material that can occur under the skin, in organs, or within tissues. They can be caused by infections, blockages in ducts, or genetic conditions. During cyst removal, the cyst is carefully excised and any remaining fragments are removed to prevent regrowth. Cyst removal may be recommended if the cyst is causing discomfort, becoming infected, or if it is potentially cancerous.
  • Lipoma removal: Lipoma removal is a similar surgical procedure to cyst removal, but specifically targets the removal of lipomas. Lipomas are slow-growing, fatty tumors that can occur anywhere on the body where fat tissue is present. They are usually harmless and painless, but may cause discomfort if they grow large enough.

Ingrown Toenails

Ingrown toenails occur when the edge of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin, resulting in pain, swelling, and infection. This condition is commonly caused by incorrect trimming of nails, ill-fitting shoes, or injury. At Kaysville Clinic, we offer minor surgical procedures to treat ingrown toenails and prevent further complications. These procedures may include:

  • Partial nail avulsion: This procedure involves removing a small portion of the nail that is causing the ingrown toenail. The area is then treated to prevent regrowth of the nail.
  • Total nail avulsion: In more severe cases, the entire nail may need to be removed. This can provide immediate relief from pain and allow for proper healing of the affected area.
  • Nail matrixectomy: This procedure involves removing a portion of the nail bed to prevent the ingrown toenail from recurring.

Our team at Kaysville Clinic understands that minor surgeries can be intimidating, but rest assured that we prioritize your comfort and safety throughout the entire process. We use modern techniques and equipment to ensure minimal discomfort and quick recovery times for our patients.
