Minor Office Procedures Q & A

What are minor office procedures?

Minor surgical procedures are minimally invasive surgical procedures that don’t require general anesthesia or a complete surgical environment. Minor surgical procedures don’t take long to complete and have short recovery periods.

The highly trained and experienced team at Calvary Urgent Care perform minor procedures in a sterile setting using FDA-approved surgical equipment and local or topical anesthetic. Calvary Urgent Care also offers several non-surgical, in-clinic procedures, such as wound care, injury care, and other in-office options.

Which conditions can minor procedures address?

The skilled providers at Calvary Urgent Care can address a broad range of conditions with minor procedures. Some of these conditions include:

  • Ear wax build-up
  • Nosebleeds
  • Asthma
  • Allergic reactions
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Insect bites
  • Abscesses
  • Sprains and strains
  • Bone fractures
  • Burns
  • Neuroma and nerve entrapment

Whether your condition is acute or chronic, a minor procedure can reduce your pain and help restore function so you can get back to performing your daily activities without discomfort as quickly as possible.

Which minor procedures are available?

  • Incision and drainage (I & D)
  • IV placement
  • Nebulizer treatment

Depending on your condition, your provider may recommend additional, ongoing care to fully resolve your symptoms.

What should I expect during my procedure?

Minor procedures differ depending on the health concern they’re intended to address. Most procedures don’t require special preparation and take less than 30 minutes to complete.

Minor procedures are performed in a dedicated surgery room at Calvary Urgent Care. Your provider may use a topical numbing gel, or they may inject a local anesthetic into the skin near the affected area. They use specialized tools to perform the procedure; when finished, your provider may bandage the treatment site.

You should be able to return to normal activities right away. Still, your provider may recommend that you refrain from certain activities, such as exercise, for a short time, depending on your condition. The team provides you with all the information you need for at-home care; you’ll come in for a follow-up appointment in about a week to make sure everything is healing as it should.
