For a number of years we have had a supply of liquid nitrogen delivered every six weeks and stored on the premises for use in cryosurgery. This type of treatment is generally only available in the dermatology outpatients at the local hospital. Over the years we have successfully and relatively painlessly removed warts and other minor skin lesions. Not all skin lesions are suitable for this form of treatment. Because we store the liquid nitrogen we are able to carry out this form of treatment during normal surgery appointment time.

Electrosurgery
We have recently taken delivery of an electrosurgical unit which looks to be very promising for treatment of difficult warts and spider naevi. Ask your doctor when in the surgery if this form of treatment might be preferable to the cryosurgery.
