Ask the Minor Surgery Unit a Question
Minor Surgery Unit
We have a custom-built and superbly equipped minor surgery suite on the premises. Our standards are such that we are an approved provider of secondary care minor surgery for local Primary Health Care Trusts and currently carry out a range of minor operations on behalf of the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
All our GPs carry out simple minor surgical procedures in the surgery and Dr Omid Entekhabi-Fard leads a team of GPs who have special skills in more complex minor surgical procedures. Our waiting time to the operation is short and, as well as saving you time, this service saves you a couple of trips to the hospital.
If you have a minor skin lesion that concerns you, please see your GP who may refer you to the unit.
The unit is also able to provide a male sterilisation service (vasectomy under local anaesthetic). This service is accessed through your GP on the NHS or privately.
