General Surgery for Skin Cancers
The Skin Hospital performs skin cancer surgery for all types of skin cancers including melanomas and non-melanoma skin cancers, Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCCs) and Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCCs). Some procedures can be performed in the clinic environment while more serious ones will be operated on in our fully accredited day surgery. All specialists at the hospital are trained in surgical techniques.
Sometimes a small biopsy or sample of the tumour is taken at the initial consultation to confirm the diagnosis of skin cancer or melanoma. This is particularly likely if the nature of the tumour is not certain after clinical examination.

Plastic and Oculoplastic Surgery
When skin cancers are in particularly difficult or cosmetically sensitive areas, such as around the eyes, specialist plastic or oculoplastic surgeons will assist in closing the wound, along with your dermatologist. This ensures the safest removal of the skin cancers and the very best cosmetic result. This collaboration provides better outcomes and minimal inconvenience for patients.
