Minor Procedures Q & A

What minor procedures are available?

The Halo MD office is equipped with treatments to address a variety of minor injuries in adults and children that happen while playing sports or accidents around the home.

Dr. Leafblad and the medical team treat injuries like:

  • Cuts
  • Burns
  • Scrapes
  • Lacerations
  • Muscle sprains

They can also provide care for wounds that are slow to heal due to diabetes or another underlying health condition. The team offers chronic disease management to address the underlying cause of open or slow-healing wounds. Chronic disease management helps reduce your risk of developing other stubborn wounds.

Why would I need minor procedures?

It’s always wise to consult with the Halo MD medical team if you have an open wound or laceration that can’t easily be treated at home. This is especially the case if your young child has suffered the injury.

Without the proper care, minor injuries can worsen and lead to painful infections and other health complications.

Dr. Leafblad and the team assess the wound or injury to determine if you need X-rays or other diagnostic tests or procedures. They also customize a care plan to ensure that your injury fully heals without complications.

What happens during minor procedures?

During your evaluation for a minor injury, the Halo MD team spends time evaluating the injured area. If you have scrapes or cuts, they carefully clean the area with an antiseptic to prevent infection. They can also remove dirt, rocks, glass, or other debris from under your skin so that the wound can heal properly.

If you have an open wound that bleeds, you might need stitches to close it. If you have a burn injury, the team can apply topical medications and bandages to help your skin heal. You might also need medications and other treatments to help you manage pain.

You can expect to undergo a physical exam for muscle strains or unexplained musculoskeletal pain. You might need X-rays or other diagnostic imaging procedures to confirm a diagnosis. Dr. Leafblad and his team provide treatment guidance based on the results of your tests.
