Regular up-skilling via International Master-classes and workshops by our doctors ensure the highest medical standards and latest advances. Laboratory pathology ensures that no unnecessary operations are done.
An initial consultation involves a head to toe examination. All suspicious lesions are biopsied taking a small-anaesthetized core sample, much like the lead out of a pencil. We pride ourselves on our ‘painless’ techniques providing significantly less painful local anesthetic than is usual and using the world’s smallest needles.
Biopsies are sent to independent laboratories who are acknowledged world leaders. You are then given these results.
Only the best equipment is used to ensure the best results. The Professor of Microsurgery actually kindly donated some of our equipment on his retirement. Other, most elegant equipment to maximize results, we have specially had to import from the USA.
A ‘Boast Book’ is available on request as to the quality of our operations to reassure you should you need an operation.
Tips to help you with your first consultation:
- Please don’t wear heavy makeup if you wish to have your face examined
- If your work outdoors then please shower before your consultation as it is impossible to view suspicious lesions that are covered in grease, dirt or mud
- arrive a few minutes early to complete the paperwork
- bring you medicare card and any concession cards
