Mr Colbert is an excellent, knowledgable clinician. He takes time to make patients feel at ease and explains everything to them in a way that they can understand.
The surgery - procedure and techniques
If you need a minor operation under local anaesthetic, we will try to do this for you directly after having seen the consultant. This saves you the inconvenience of coming back on another day for your treatment.
Some patients who are taking blood-thinning medication such as warfarin or clopidogrel may need to stop this for a few days before surgery. However, it is important that you do not stop taking any medication unless requested to do so either by one of our consultants or by your GP. Aspirin is not generally a problem and patients can continue to take this as normal.
After surgery we can arrange for follow-up with your GP or practice nurse, although we may need to see you again once or twice at the private hospital depending upon what you have had done. We will, of course, advise you about this on the day of your surgery.
If a biopsy is required a charge is made for the histological examination of the specimen.
