The repairs will be done via local anesthetic nerve block.

Prior to surgery the patient will have a dedicated appointment with the surgeon to discuss treatment options and consent.

  • Under 18 years
  • A patient who is significantly obese with a BMI >35
  • Current or previous MRSA Positive - unless negative swabs confirm eradication in previous 6 months

  • If the BCC does not meet the above criteria, or there is any diagnostic doubt, following discussion with the patient they should be referred to a member of the LSMDT.
