Welcome to Skin Surveillance

We are a doctor owned and operated independent private primary care practice. No referral for our services is required. Our goal is provision of high standard skin cancer early detection and primary care treatment. We offer patients comprehensive skin cancer services with particular emphasis on the early detection of melanoma and ongoing skin surveillance in high risk individuals. When appropriate we refer patients to specialist dermatologist and plastic surgeon colleagues. Our full skin examinations involve complete head to toe examination supplemented with use of high magnification skin surface microscopes (dermoscopes) and non invasive high frequency diagnostic skin ultrasound where clinically indicated. Judicious use of modern medical imaging technologies can in many circumstances reduce the necessity for invasive surgical biopsy and precautionary removal of skin lesions. High resolution 18 megapixel DSLR digital dermoscopy skin surface microscopy facilitates magnification of features within skin lesions to provide information on lesion structure and any likelihood for malignancy. Short and long term serial digital monitoring facilitates more accurate lesion comparison for suspicious dermoscopic changes over time to supplement clinical reviews. Non invasive high frequency diagnostic ultrasound measures skin lesion thickness and can indicate which lesions warrant invasive biopsy sampling and which lesions may be benign. Skin tissue biopsy sampling and skin cancer surgical excision removal are performed in our custom built procedure room under local anaesthetic. Our subsequent follow up of both surgical and non surgical skin cancer treatments also includes the application of high frequency diagnostic skin ultrasound to detect any possible sub clinical (not visually apparent) recurrence of melanoma or non-melanoma skin cancer. Total Body Photography (TBP) for melanoma high risk patients is performed in our custom built clinical photography studio by our Canfield USA trained clinical photographer. We provide professional studio Total Body Photography Services on request by our specialist surgical and family physician colleagues for their melanoma high risk patients. ...
