Ashbank has a minor and major surgery area within the practice. The former is for carrying out less sterile procedures such as a cut pad while the latter is reserved for the bigger more complicated procedures such as fracture repair and major surgery where sterility is paramount.
We use pre-packed surgical instruments using the practice autoclave allowing us to have a large range of specialist instruments ready for a variety of routine and complex procedures including orthopaedic, soft tissue, neurological and cardiovascular procedures.
Modern drugs and aneasthetics are used to mimimise risk to our patients. During anaesthesia patients are monitored by qualified nurses, ECM, pulse-oximeters and respiration monitors; pictured right.
We also have a range of modern suture materials suited to all different types of surgery.
