In-Office Procedures

We are equipped in office to provide many procedures for sick children, many times eliminating the need to send our children to Emergency Departments. At APA, we routinely perform:

  • incision and drainage of abscesses (boils/risens)
  • laceration repair (stitches, staples and topical skin adhesives) along with their removal
  • nebulized breathing treatments for asthma attacks
  • pulse oximetry
  • antibiotic injections
  • steroid injections
  • foreign body removals (noses, ears, et cetera)
  • urine catheterizations
  • umbilical chemocautery
  • burn care
  • simple splinting
  • tongue clipping

We do not pierce ears.
