It has finally happened after several years of talking about it... Sage Aesthetic has been accredited by Healthcare Improvement Scotland to provide Minor Surgery and Joint Injection services!! Our thanks to HIS Inspector Mr Kenny Crosbie, who was a great source of help and advice throughout the process.
We would therefore like to welcome a new colleague to our clinic: Dr Iain Innes. A well known GP with a Special Interest in Orthopaedics, he brings with him many years experience in assessing patients and providing steroid injections.
In addition to our usual aesthetic procedures we will be commencing our much anticipated minor surgical service where we can assess troublesome skin lesions and advise on their correction if required. Dr Gordon and Dr Innes will both be offering minor surgical treatments; if you have a preference for either doctor, please let our administrator Gillian know at the time of booking, otherwise she will book you an appointment according to your calendar preferences for the earliest available date.
We know that it can be difficult to get appointments for removal of stitches or dressings so we provide a fully inclusive service where our price includes initial dressings, removal of stitches and follow up where necessary at no extra cost.
Aesthetic procedures continue as normal until 19th January 2024, at which point they will cease for a few months to allow for my second knee surgery 🦿- I am hoping to return to work mid-April but this will obviously depend on my progress post-operatively. Gillian is taking bookings for this time, but they will be made on the understanding that should recovery take longer than expected, then we may need to move the appointments back a little. With this in mind, please let Gillian know if you are working towards a fixed point (eg a wedding, especially if it's your own!) so that we can take this into account should we have to reschedule, many thanks. Obviously Richard will be on hand to address any issues arising with treatments already done, so please do contact us as normal via email if you have any queries or concerns!
