Plastic surgeon, Sheffield

Removal of lumps

Mr Morritt regularly performs surgery to remove benign lumps such as lipomas and sebaceous cysts. As the vast majority of these lumps are relatively small and superficial, surgery can generally be performed under local anaesthetic as a daycase procedure.  In the rare instances where lumps are either very large or are deeply located, general anaesthetic and an overnight stay in hospital may be required.


Mr Morritt has experience in treating patients with Dercum’s disease (multiple lipomas; adiposis dolorosa) and in removing neurofibromas in patients with neurofibromatosis.
