Procedures can be completed with little time investment, while being performed in a sterile, technologically advanced environment, allowing patients to be on their way, quickly and safely.

Range of Services  
Located adjacent to the main surgical operating room in Bayshore Hospital, the Minor Surgery Unit performs the following procedures, promptly and on-time, for the convenience of its patients:  

  • Eye Laser Treatments for glaucoma and secondary cataracts.
  • Excision and Laser Removal of Skin Abnormalities such as lipomas, cysts, warts, lesions, small masses and tumors.
  • Arthroplasty of Toes to repair deformed toe joints.
  • Skin Grafts to aid in wound healing, particularly for diabetic foot ulcers and venous leg ulcers.
  • Epidural Steroid Injections of corticosteroids into the area surrounding the spinal cord, to reduce pain and other symptoms caused by nerve inflammation and irritation.

State of the Art Equipment  
With the latest, hospital-grade medical equipment accessible for the use of on-staff physicians, Bayshore offers superior facilities to those available in doctors' offices performing similar procedures:

  • A cutting-edge hydrosurgery irrigation machine providing medical practitioners with the latest technology to irrigate lesions and remove damaged tissue while sparing viable tissue, all as part of the wound debridement process. The result for patients is often improved healing and reduced treatment time.
  • A high-grade electrocautery machine for use in controlling bleeding and removing unwanted tissue during deep skin excisions.
  • The latest ophthalmology microscopes, ensuring superior, and precise, laser treatment for Bayshore patients' eye care needs.  

With superior patient satisfaction ratings, the Minor Surgery staff provides comprehensive pre- and post-operative care, including a thorough pre-op phone interview and continuous monitoring by a registered nurse throughout the procedure. Post-operative care is reviewed with each patient upon discharge, completing the cycle of fine medical service from the Bayshore Minor Surgery team.
