Skin cancer care

Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, with thousands of people diagnosed across the country each year. The vast majority of these cancers are caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. There are three main types of skin cancer – melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

Dr Stewart regularly treats complex skin cancer cases, both publicly and privately, and would be happy to support you in managing your disease. His treatments include excision of the lesion and reconstruction options (from simple to complex), together with ongoing follow-up care.

Dr Stewart may also refer you to a specialist dermatologist for combined post-operative care, to ensure you receive the highest quality advice and support for your individual needs and recovery. If you have any questions regarding post-operative care, please contact our team today.
