MEDICINE & SURGERY
Vasectomy is one of the safest and most effective methods of permanent birth control. More than 500,000 men per year in North America choose vasectomy. The vasectomy surgery is conveniently covered by Alberta Health Care. Your visit to our clinic includes a consultation to review any questions you may have, with the procedure taking as little as 30 minutes. No-scalpel vasectomy is a technique that uses a small clamp with pointed ends. Instead of using a scalpel to cut the skin, the clamp is poked through the skin and then opened. The benefits of this procedure include less bleeding, a smaller entry and fewer complications. Most patients have minimal discomfort and a fast recovery.
Lumps and Bumps
There are a number of skin conditions that cause lumps and bumps to appear on the surface or just below the skin. We treat skin cysts, cherry angioma, lipomas, dermatofibromas and more.
Radiofrequency mole removal is commonly used to remove moles that protrude above the surface of the skin. This procedure utilises a device called the Ellman Radiosurgery electrode to gently remove the mole layer by layer from the surface of the skin. Skin is cauterised at the same time as the device gently shaves the mole. Radiofrequency mole removal with this tool is the best option for evenness of skin texture, offering the doctor better control over the depth of removal and to reduce scarring.
Prolotherapy is a targeted injection of a mild irritant solution directly on the site of the torn or stretched ligament or tendon, creating a mild, controlled injury that stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms to lay down new tissue on the weakened structure. The mild inflammatory response that is created by the injection encourages growth of new ligament or tendon fibers, resulting in a tightening of the weakened structure. Additional treatments repeat this process, allowing a gradual buildup of tissue to restore the original strength to the area

Platlet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platlet-Rich Plasma (PRP)uses injections of the patients concentrated platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints. Administered under ultrasound guidance PRP can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal issues. Cosmetically we can provide skin rejuvenation, vampire facials with micro-needling and hair restoration.
This injection of hyaluronic acid acts as a lubricant to enable joints to move smoothly over each and act as a shock absorber. It can effectively relieve pain for conditions such as arthritis and osteoarthritis of numerous joints.
