Joint injections

Injections into joints are called intra-articular injections. If you have a swollen or painful joint the GP may inject a steroid medication into the joint. Sometimes the doctor may inject a local anaesthetic (numbing medicine) along with the steroid.

Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy is a safe, quick and effective method for the removal of warts, verrucae, skin tags and other lesions by freezing with liquid nitrogen. Talk to your GP about cryotherapy to determine whether it is right for you; depending on your skin lesion, or in the case of young children, your GP may recommend an alternative option.

Ear Microsuction

For chronic ear infection or removal of a foreign body or wax where it would be unsafe. Always consult your GP if you have any concerns about your ears or hearing; never insert anything into your ears in an attempt to clean them or remove wax, as this can damage your hearing.
