Types of minor skin surgery include:

  • Removing skin tags and moles for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons.
  • Repair skin wounds that require sterile cleaning and stitches.
  • Treating a previously biopsied mole or suspicious skin mark.

UPMC's family medicine doctors can perform minor skin surgery in one of our offices that has the equipment to work under sterile conditions and provide local anesthetic to help control pain.
