At Kilmacud Medical Centre Stillorgan, we offer a wide range of services to our patients. Below is a list of some of these. If you wish to book for any of these services please let us know at the time of booking as some of these will take longer than the usual 15 minute appointment slot.

Ambulatory Blood Pressure MonitoringAs many as 20% of people thought to have high blood pressure, have normal readings once they leave the doctors surgery. This syndrome is called “white coat hypertension” and is due to the anxiety associated with having your blood pressure taken. Wearing a BP monitor for 24 hours can easily establish the true picture. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring will also help determine the degree of risk your blood pressure is causing and help decide whether or not you need drug therapy.
CryotherapyCryotherapy is a well established method of removing a variety of unwanted skin lesions including warts. It involves the use of liquid nitrogen which when applied to certain skin lesions “freezes” them off. Cryotherapy is carried out by our practice nurse.
