Excision or surgery of soft tissue and foreign bodies
Last update: 1 November 2019
Excision (or surgery of soft tissue and foreign bodies)
Soft tissue removal can be performed easily at the clinic. This operation can be performed on a nail, toes or the foot. Excision is often performed when a foreign body has become lodged in your foot (an object, glass, metal, wood, etc.) or a lesion requires complete removal and has become too large for a simple biopsy. Your podiatrist can remove and send any lesion that bothers you for a pathology report.
By choosing this option, your PiedRéseau clinic can provide you with:
- An accurate diagnosis of the lesion
- Long-lasting relief
- A preventive approach (avoid infection to the lesion)
- Good follow-up at the clinic
Soft tissue removal is generally done under local anaesthesia. Stitches may be required.
