Office-Based Procedures

When an option, patients prefer procedures done in the office.

OSS doctors can do some surgeries and procedures in the office (instead of in a surgery facility) because certain ones only require the OSS doctor to use local anesthesia, the SAME local anesthesia that a dentist uses for a dental procedure done in her office.

The benefit to you is the OSS doctor can do the procedure in an environment that is already familiar to you - the office.  The OSS doctor can safely manage the local anesthesia medication and follow the same standard operating room protocols to keep you safe.
