Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr John McKenna at Spire include:
I am a Consultant Dermatologist experienced in the diagnosis and care of all aspects of skin problems. I have particular expertise in the early diagnosis and the surgical management of skin cancers and believes in taking the time to listen to his patients, fully explaining the diagnosis and all appropriate treatment options.
I graduated from Glasgow University. I completed my specialist dermatology training in Belfast where I was involved in research to improve computed assisted diagnosis of melanoma. I then went on to train in additional advanced dermatological surgery, lasers, and Mohs micrographic surgery for complex skin cancers in St Thomas' Hospital, London. I am one of only a few consultants in the UK that have completed a prestigious Mohs Micrographic Surgery training fellowship in addition to their general dermatology training.
I moved to Leicester in July 2008 after being appointed as a Consultant Dermatologist with a specialist interest in dermatological surgery and skin cancer at Leicester Royal Infirmary. I quickly set up a much needed Mohs Micrographic Surgery service permitting access to this specialised treatment to patients across the region.
I am the only Mohs micrographic surgeon in Leicester, accepting referrals from GPs and from other consultant colleagues both locally and regionally.
I am the Deputy Lead for the Comprehensive Local Research Network for Leicester, Northampton, and Rutland. I promote research and recruits to several national research studies, particularly in Psoriasis and Acne. I am also a collaborator in on-going research into Keloid scarring and experimental medical imaging of Basal Cell Carcinoma.
