HPV Vaccination @ Temple Bar Medical Centre

HPV (human papilloma virus) is extremely common and there are many different strains of the virus. A vaccination is available to protect against certain strains of the virus – in particular, the types associated most commonly with genital warts and the causes of cervical cancers. The vaccination also offers protection against certain anal and oral cancers.

The vaccination used is called Gardasil and there are now 2 types of Gardasil Vaccination available - the first is the original vaccine Gardasil and the second is called Gardasil 9.

Gardasil helps protect against 4 types of HPV: 6, 11, 16 & 18

&

Gardasil 9 helps protect against: HPV Types 6, 11, 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52, and 58.

The vaccine is administered in 3 doses over a six-month period at 0, 2 and 6 months.

The first dose is given following a consultation with one of our Doctors and the 2nd and 3rd doses are given by our Practice Nurse.

Although slightly more expensive, we would recommend use of the Gardasil 9 vaccine due to the additional protection that it offers. Gardasil 9 is also the vaccine used by the HSE for vaccinating school age boys and girls.

Cryotherapy @ Temple Bar Medical Centre

Cryotherapy is the use of Liquid Nitrogen to freeze the tissue cells of growths or lesions. It is most commonly used to treat skin conditions such as warts, molluscum and skin tags. Often more than one treatment is required to achieve the desired results. The treatment itself is generally well tolerated by patients with only mild discomfort experienced followed by some redness around the treated site. Other possible side effects are the small risk of scarring, lightening and/or darkening of the skin and infection.
