Surgical Dermatology with Dr Ravi Ratnavel
We are thrilled to announce the introduction of our brand-new surgical dermatology clinic, being run at Karma House Clinic by renowned dermatologist, Dr Ravi Ratnavel.
The surgical dermatology clinic at Karma House will provide professional examination and removal of unwanted skin lesions. This would include moles, cysts, skin tags and lipoma. Dr Ratnavel specialises in skin cancer treatment in line with all national guidelines and within a multi-disciplinary setting.
Removal and diagnosis of skin lesions can prove difficult. Although skin cancers are rare, any non-healing lesions that present signs of growth or change, should be examined by a professional and if required, referred onto a consultant dermatologist.
When attending Karma House Clinic’s surgical dermatology clinic, Dr Ratnavel will perform a complete medical assessment of your skin and presenting skin lesions. Any suspicious lesions can be surgically removed under local anaesthetic and sent for histological examination (pathology).
Benign skin lesions are removed on a local anaesthetic surgical list at Karma House Clinic.
