TREATMENT SKIN PROBLEMS
At and in your skin changes can occur, that are bothering to you [ even cosmetic ]. For many skin problems we offer surgical treatment. Both GP's have vast experience in surgery and at our office we have plenty instruments. After surgical treatment the used instrumentarium is first desinfected and then sterilized. Most of the times your GP will administer a local anaesthetic agent. When the wound has to be stitched your doctor will generally make us of non-absorbable threads, which have to be removed after five to ten days by our assistant. When the skin problem is located in a difficult or unusual position, or when too big, your GP will refer you to the hospital.
Moles come in many different sorts and sizes. When a mole is itching, changing colour, or bleeding you have to have the mole checked by your GP. There can be cosmetic reasons too to get rid of a mole. This is always done under local anaesthesia. After removal the skin will be stitched. A mole will be send to the pathologist for further analysis.

The treatment for warts is diverse. Every other week you can have you warts apply with liquid nitrogen. The warts will freeze and consequently fall off.
