Specialises in

I specialise in the management of skin cancer and dermatological and laser surgery for benign and malignant lesions.

I graduated from University College Dublin with an honours degree in Medicine and Surgery. I completed postgraduate specialist medical training to become a member of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland. After completing five years of specialist training in all aspects of dermatology, I undertook prestigious fellowships in skin cancer, Mohs micrographic surgery and Lasers at The St John’s Institute of Dermatology.

I undertook a Masters Degree in Skin Ageing and Aesthetics in Manchester University where I am now an honorary lecturer. My NHS Consultant post is in the Dermatological Surgery and Laser unit in Guy's Hospital. At the Spire Harpenden, I treat all types of skin lesions, lumps and bumps and perform mole checks. I also treat acne, acne scarring and consult on cosmetic treatments.

I have presented nationally and internationally on skin cancer, skin surgery, lasers and cosmetic dermatology. I am responsible for the training of international and national fellows in Mohs Micrographic Surgery. I also have a Masters Degree in Skin Ageing and Aesthetic Medicine and am an Executive Board member of the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group.
