Servicing North Brisbane

Dr. Kyle performs a variety of minor surgical procedures under local anaesthetic right in the practice at Kallangur in a minor ops theatre with a nurse assistant.

Billing is through Medicare with a gap fee, however pensioners are bulk-billed, so patients can benefit from private surgical care without private health cover.

Most patients who see Dr. Kyle will have their specialist consultation followed by their minor surgical procedure on the same day. There is no need for long waiting-lists.

  • Excision of skin cancer

  • Rotational and advancement skin flaps

  • Carpal tunnel release

  • Ganglion excision

  • Benign skin lesions and excision of sebaceous cysts

  • Toenail wedge excisions
