Our Division of Dermatology has defined three centres of excellence:
- Cancer: including melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer.
- Inflammatory Dermatoses: including conditions such as contact dermatitis and psoriasis
- Wound Healing: particularly chronic cutaneous wounds including leg ulcers
General Dermatology (Physician referrals only) – Civic Campus
Patients are assessed and treated for a broad spectrum of dermatological disorders which range from rashes, hives, lumps, and bumps through to shingles, lupus-like disorders, pre-cancerous lesions and skin cancers. Surgeries requiring a local anesthetic are conducted within the clinic and are well-supported by ongoing patient education.
Phototherapy and Psoriasis (Dermatologist referrals only) – Civic Campus
Ultraviolet light (UVB or UVA) is used 3-5 times per week to treat several resistant skin disorders including psoriasis, eczema, pruritus and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. Adjuvant topical therapies are discussed and there is intensive counselling and support from our phototherapy nurses.
Clinics held on Thursday mornings each week
Mohs Surgery (All Physician referrals) – Civic Campus
Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized and highly effective procedure for treating common types of skin cancer. Mohs surgery is most commonly used to treat basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. Certain melanomas and other skin cancers can also be treated with Mohs surgery. Mohs surgery provides very high cure rates with minimal loss of normal tissue. It is all performed under local anesthetic.
Clinics held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday each week.
Contact Dermatology (Dermatologist only) – Civic Campus
