Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital


Minor Surgery

Minor procedures are performed in the surgical clinic under local anesthesia. These are mainly skin lumps, infections and lesions suspicious for skin cancer. A direct appointment can be made in the minor surgery clinic so that the initial evaluation and the procedure can be done on the same day. Sutures are usually absorbable so that, if the wound is healing well, no follow-up appointments are needed.
