Minor Surgery

We perform a broad variety of minor surgical procedures that can be managed under local anaesthesia as out-patient procedures.

These conditions include carpal tunnel syndrome and other nerve entrapment syndromes, trigger finger, ganglions, hand contractures, cysts, and various additional bone and soft tissue growths.


Dr. Klippenstein is not currently taking referrals for spine or neck conditions, primary hip problems, or foot surgery such as bunions.

Sometimes certain orthopaedic conditions are beyond the scope of our practice in Brandon, and we will then facilitate the appropriate referral to another specialist.
