The Skin Centre at The Harley Street Clinic
Do you have patients with suspect moles? Or perhaps you have a cancer patient whose rashes or hair loss is affecting their confidence and self-esteem?
Unlike other skin clinics in the area, The Harley Street Clinic’s Skin Service brings together a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) of clinical and cosmetic specialists – all under one roof. Specialists work with patients to diagnose and treat their skin cancer, and help those suffering from other types of cancer to manage the debilitating side effects of treatment on the skin and hair.
Typically, patients with suspected skin cancer will receive a biopsy as part of their initial consultation, with pathology results available within 48 hours, meaning that certain skin cancers can be diagnosed and treated on the same day. When it comes to treating skin cancer, our surgeons use the very
latest Mohs technology to ensure that as much as possible of the healthy tissue is maintained, whilst working scrupulously to remove all the skin cancer present. For procedures that do leave prominent scars, our team of reconstructive surgeons can work to improve the aesthetic appearance of the skin and restore the patient’s wellbeing.
Aside from skin cancer, our specialist dermatology physicians provide a number of complementary treatments for other forms of cancer. Dr Iaisha Ali, for example, specialises in providing hair loss therapy for our cancer patients who have undergone chemotherapy. Equally, Dr Nisith Sheth uses laser therapy to treat troublesome rashes and acne caused by cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
Around 50% of cancer patients will experience some sort of skin or hair issue. Many will have undergone successful cancer treatment – only to be left with visible signs of the battle they have just gone through. With an MDT approach, the team at the hospital work with the patient to resolve these issues and help them feel themselves again.
We offer a rapid access system to make sure patients can be seen quickly. If you wish to refer a patient, please contact T: 020 3553 2657 E: email@example.com
