SKIN LESIONS / SWELLINGS / Common Paediatric Surgical Procedures
COMMON PAEDIATRIC SURGICAL PROCEDURES
There are a wide range of swellings / lesions that can occur in the skin and soft tissues in children both in the head and neck and other parts of the body. The great majority of these are not malignant but can often be symptomatic and /or carry a risk of getting infected. These swellings will be assessed clinically and if necessary with imaging such as ultra sound scans to guide the need and extent of surgery.
Vascular malformations can be managed in conjunction with interventional radiology specialists. Haemanagiomas can be assessed and treatment offered if appropriate.
My aim is to listen to children and families, to understand what the problem is and to agree on the best possible care including surgery when appropriate, in a safe and child centred environment.
As a paediatric surgeon I provide consultations, management and surgery for a wide range of conditions.
Information to help yoiu prepare for surgery will be provided when booking ion for a procedure.
