Skin Cancer and Scar Centre
We are a dedicated Skin Cancer Clinic located in the heart of Newcastle. We provide professional and quality services to Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter region.
With over 20 years of experience in the management of skin cancer, we are experienced in and proficient at the screening, diagnosis, and management of skin cancer of various subtlety and complexity, including some challenging locations. We are fully qualified and accredited as a skin cancer specialist, and are continuously updating our skill and knowledge in this field.
In addition, we have furthered our services beyond the treatment of skin cancer, our clinic is also specialised in scar prevention, minimalisation, and restoration. Whether it is a hypertrophioc scar, keloid scar, traumatic scar or surgical scar, we have the skill and specialised equipments to attend to scars of various complexity.
It is important to note that scar management in relation to skin procedures starts as soon as the lesion is first presented. What, when and how the biopsy is made, and the actual treatment procedure itself need to be planned ahead with the best cosmetic intent in mind. It is always better to camouflage a well planned scar, than a poorly planned and performed surgical scar.
I hope that we give you the comfort and confidence in the services we provide. Please feel free to ask me any question you may have, and I will try my best to answer them.
