Northwood Dermatology Service

At BMI Bishops Wood our consultant dermatologists treat for a wide range of skin disorders, from rashes to more serious conditions such as skin cancer. We offer consultations and treatment for both cosmetic and medical purposes.

Removing benign skin lesion

Skin lesions are found on or just under the skin, examples including lipomata, skin tags, cysts and moles.

The operation to removes the skin lesions takes 15 to 25 minutes under local anaesthetic, and you should be able to go the same day.

Mohs surgery

Mohs surgery is an operation performed to remove skin cancer. The procedure removes thin layers of skin, with each layer analysed until no further cancer cells are present on the sample.

The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and you should be able to go home the same day.
