Trauma and Reconstruction
These include injuries to the scalp and face including cosmetically sensitive areas such as eyes, lips, nose, eyebrows and ears. Hand injuries, including wounds, not infrequently require exploration to repair damage to skin, soft tissues, tendons, nerves and blood vessels. Similarly, injuries may also involve the lower limb and trunk.
Skin Cancer Diagnosis & Management
The general incidence of skin cancer is increasing across the UK and Ireland. The outcome is much improved if diagnosed early with timely management. This includes treatment for suspicious lesions, basal cell carcinoma (rodent ulcer), squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma as well as rarer skin cancers. Biopsies (including face and rest of body), wider excisions, reconstruction and sentinel node biopsy undertaken. Complex individual cases are discussed at the Skin Cancer Meeting (MDT) with other Specialist colleagues to ensure optimal management is provided for the individual patient.
Benign Skin Conditions
Diagnosis and management of cysts, lipomas, moles, lumps & bumps and skin tags. These conditions can cause problems with function or appearance or both.

Reconstruction maybe required after removal of tumours affecting the female genitalia. This may involve moving local tissue or the use of skin grafts.
