Surgical Dermatology
A number of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery departments carry
Surgical Dermatology.

This might seem odd at first glance, but the clinicians often
have had first-hand experience of suturing up (sewing up)
faces.  Often, if one of the consultants in OMFS Department
has an interest in
Surgical Oncology, there is a concomitant
interest in
Surgical Dermatology.

Hence, in an OMFS Department you may have skin lesions
removed / biopsied or have scars revised.  Consequently,
advice can be given regarding the care for scars, diagnoses
of skin lesions etc.

I list below a number of websites that provide a broader and
more profound knowledge of dermatology than this website
hopes to provide.

Useful Websites:


British Association of Dermatologists

Wales College of Medicine Department of Dermatology

Australasian College of Dermatologists

New Zealand Dermatological Society
