Dr Robert Burd
BSc MedSci, MB ChB, MRCP(Lond), CCST
I graduated from the Leicester University Medical School in 1990 and subsequently completed my general professional training in internal medicine before entering higher specialist training in dermatology.
I spent one year as a post membership SHO in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, before moving to Leeds as a registrar. While at Leeds, I gained particular experience in managing acne and also in the use of lasers in treating cutaneous disorders. In 1997, I moved to Leicester as a specialist registrar to complete my training. I have developed a special interest in dermatological surgery, particularly with reference to the management of skin cancer.
In February 2000, I was appointed as a consultant dermatologist at the Hospital of St Cross in Rugby. However, later that year I was offered the opportunity of returning to Leicester as a consultant with a special interest in dermatological surgery and oncology.
I also have responsibility for the laser service in Leicestershire.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Robert Burd at Spire include:
Dr Burd sees adults and children and treats general dermatological conditions and skin cancers.
Spire Leicester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
