Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Saul Halpern at Spire include:
I graduated from the Royal London Hospital Medical College, University of London in 1987 with an additional first class honours degree in pharmacology. I completed higher medical training at St Bartholomew's and Guys Hospitals, London, before undertaking higher specialist training in dermatology at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London and the Royal Liverpool University Hospital between 1992 and 1998. During this time I also won a research fellowship in biomedical pharmacology at the William Harvey Institute, London studying the effects of steroids on skin cell biology. I was appointed consultant dermatologist for West Kent in August 1998, based at the Medway Maritime Hospital and also work at Maidstone Hospital.
Within the dermatology department I have special interests in skin cancer and skin cancer surgery, being a core member of the West Kent Skin Cancer Multidisciplinary Team. I also takes lead responsibilities for phototherapy (light treatments), clinical governance and teledermatology.
Since 2003 I have developed an interest in aesthetic dermatology with further training and experience in cosmetic treatments for private patients such as anti-wrinkle treatments (Botox and Dermal fillers), chemical peels, Veinwave and micro needling techniques for facial rejuvenation, pigmentary abnormalities and acne scarring.
As a highly trained and experienced dermatologist, I can advise and investigate all skin conditions including moles, skin tumours, acne, psoriasis, eczema and skin allergies. I strongly believes in giving patients time to fully explain the nature of their condition and treatment options available.
I am educational supervisor for trainee dermatologists from the Kent and Sussex Deanery based at Medway Maritime Hospital and iam well recognised not only for educational work with local GP's but also for presenting at national and international meetings and congresses.
In recent years my main research interests have focused on teledermatology (the use of communication technology and digital imagery to provide distant dermatology expertise) and I am widely regarded as a national expert in this field. I have published in and am a reviewer for leading journals including The British Journal of Dermatology. Currently I am the chairman of the British Teledermatology Society and Vice President of the International Society of Teledermatology.
