Vasectomy Surgery is one of the safest and most effective methods of permanent birth control. Every year, more than 500,000 men in North America choose to have a vasectomy. Fortunately, vasectomy surgery is covered by Alberta Health Care. Visit our clinic in Cochrane, 18 km northwest of Calgary, for a consultation to review any questions you may have. The procedure is complete in as little as 30 minutes.
The 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 vasectomy surgery includes less bleeding, a smaller entry, and fewer complications. Most patients have minimal discomfort and recover quickly.
Many skin conditions cause lumps and bumps to appear on the surface or just below the skin. Our Clinic treats 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. Synergy utilizes a device called the Ellman Radiosurgery Electrode, which gently removes moles, birthmarks, and skin tags layer by layer from the skin's surface. The skin is cauterized as the device gently shaves the growth with a local anesthetic to ensure patients remain comfortable during the treatment. This technique is the best option to ensure an even skin texture. It offers the doctor better control over the depth of the removal and reduces scarring.
