Image Guided Foreign Body Removals General Questions

How we remove foreign bodies

Our doctors commonly give the patient a local anaesthetic. We then pinpoint the exact location of the foreign object using our state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment. Vision XRAY Group’s procedures ensure a fast result with as few side effects to the body as possible.

What types of foreign bodies can you remove?

Some examples of foreign objects we’ve removed include:

  • splinters
  • glass
  • metallic fragments
  • palm fronds
  • sea urchin spikes.
