- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 45-year-old woman was bothered by the appearance of the bump at the center of her forehead, and reported the bump had grown slowly over the last 8 years. Dr. Inessa Fishman diagnosed her with an osteoma and removed this growth, hiding the scar within the patient’s hair. The patient is shown 2 months after treatment, with excellent healing progress. The treatment was performed in our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with medications and laughing gas.
