If you are a patient of Dr. Adlul then you can simply make an appointment. If you have another family doctor then you can simply ask your family doctor to be referred for the procedure.
- Shoulder injections
Some patients suffering from osteoarthritis or bursitis of the shoulder may not find adequate benefit from pain killers or physiotherapy. In such cases steroid injection is indicated and can bring about much needed relief.

- Elbow injections
Golfer’s elbow or tennis elbow can be a nuisance. The initial treatment for them is rest, ice, pain meds, brace and physiotherapy. If these are not effective, then a steroid injection can be an effective solution.
- Tongue tie release
Some babies are born with tongue ties which can make it difficult for them to breast feed properly. Tongue-tie release is a minor pain-less procedure that can allow new born babies to better latch unto mother’s breasts and hence feed better.
- Toe nail resection
In grown toe nails are painful! It most commonly occurs on the big toes and happen when one of the side of the nail digs into the nail bed. With a simple 15 minute in-office procedure, the problem can be solved. The procedure itself is as painful as getting 2 simple flu shots.
- IUD insertion
Intrauterine device (IUD) is the most effective form of birth control method. They can remain within the uterus for 3-5 years or can be removed earlier if the patient wishes to become pregnant at an earlier time. The procedure is similar to having a PAP test; instead of taking a swab, a small IUD is placed inside the uterus.
- Skin biopsies
Sometimes, a skin condition can be difficult to diagnose and so a biopsy is indicated. This procedure is as painful as getting a simple flu shot and involves taking a small sample of skin.

Skin tags can sometimes be annoying and can occur in unwanted places. They can be easily removed in the office in a pain free manner. (This procedure may not be OHIP covered depending on where they are).
