Office Based Surgical Procedures Q & A

What types of surgery does Dr. Matika perform in her office?

Dr. Matika performs a range of in-office procedures for a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • treatment of in-grown toenails

  • removal of skin lesions, moles, abscesses, lipomas (fatty tissue growths) and warts

  • wound care for non-healing wounds, phlebitis and cellulitis

Plus, Dr. Matika can offer treatment and guidance for circulatory issues like venous insufficiency that can result in painful varicose veins and swelling of the feet and ankles.

Is in-office surgery safe?

Absolutely; Dr. Matika uses state-of-the-art equipment and proven techniques to ensure the best outcomes and the highest degree of safety for optimal results, quick healing and peace of mind. No surgery is performed without a complete and comprehensive evaluation of each patient's unique problems and anatomy, and depending on the condition being treated, most surgeries are only recommended after other, more conservative approaches have been tried and have failed to achieve results. As a leading foot care practitioner, Dr. Matika takes her practice and her patients' needs very seriously, and she works hard to ensure every patient gets the best, safest care available.

How can Dr. Matika tell if I need to have surgery on a corn, callus, wart or other growth?

In many cases, Dr. Matika will decide to pursue more conservative, non-surgical treatments first to see if those approaches can get the results you need to feel your best. Only once those treatments have failed will she consider a surgical approach to resolve the problem. Other conditions are best treated surgically right from the start to ensure proper healing and a quick recovery. During your consultation, Dr. Matika will discuss all the options for you so you can feel confident in the decision that's made.
