In medical terminology, minor surgery can be referred to as any invasive operative procedure—however, one where only the skin, connective tissue, or mucus membranes are resected. For instance, making a vascular cut placed across the patient’s neck can easily be counted as a minor surgery even though technically it may not even suffice for surgery for a layman.
In addition, a biopsy, tooth extraction, grafts, implants, and catheter placements are all considered minor surgeries. They can range from being individual procedures to being a part of major surgery. Minor surgeries may be conducted in the form of emergencies as well without the patient or caregiver’s permission or consent unless the patient has a DNR.
Therefore, intubation and stitches are also a kind of minor surgery that may occur as an emergency requirement at any given time for a patient. At the same time, others can occur amidst a major surgery, during, before, or even after. Minor surgeries may need to be conducted in a sterile environment. Hence, the patient has to be admitted to the hospital.
At Windermere Medical, our medical team considered minor surgical procedures that can safely be performed without the external input of general anesthesia, respiratory assistance, or even post-surgery intensive care. However, we still ensure optimum care and perform these procedures in a sterile environment using local anesthesia delivered via injection.
Minor surgeries may vary from specialty to specialty and location to location. However, the following are the most common type of minor technical surgeries that you can get at Windermere Medical.
