Tweed Skin Cancer Clinic (Affiliated with SunDoctors)
Tweed Skin Cancer Clinic has been open in the Tweed since 1998. Our patient base spans from Brisbane to Coffs Harbour and inland to Glen Innes.
When getting a skin check you should have confidence that your skin cancer Doctor has the right level of skill to be able pick up all of your skin cancers and melanomas. At this Clinic we use Southern Sun Pathology which is affiliated with the Sydney Melanoma Unit at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Our Pathology audit results show that our pick up rates for skin cancer and melanoma are one of the highest in this group Nationally.
You should also have confidence that your Doctor has a high level of skill in treating your skin cancers, and will recommend the most appropriate form of treatment for you as a patient. If your Doctor does not have the skill or training to perform the surgery, you should be referred to a Plastic Surgeon.
We understand that skin cancer treatment can be very difficult at times. We appreciate that Specialist Plastic Surgeons spend many years learning advanced skin cancer treatments and surgical techniques through accredited Colleges. All our Doctors undertake ongoing training and supervision by a highly skilled Plastic Surgeon who has been visiting the Clinic for more than seven years now.
If you are in doubt about the procedure your Doctor wants to perform, as a patient you have the right to seek a second opinion or request to be referred to a Specialist. At this Clinic we only perform procedures that are supported by evidence based research and used by Specialist Plastic Surgeons.
