We perform several procedures in our office with local anesthesia. Consideration for this type of appointment is determined by Genesee Surgical medical staff based on lesion location, size, and other health factors.
When calling to schedule your appointment you will be asked several questions. A note from your referring doctor will be requested. The appropriate type of appointment will be scheduled for you once your information has been reviewed.
It is expected that your surgical procedure will be performed at the time of your appointment. If after evaluation, the provider feels that the procedure cannot safely be performed in an in-office setting or in the allotted time, he/she may have you reschedule your procedure for a more appropriate setting/time.
