Skin cancer affects many Australians, especially (but not exclusively) in their later years.
Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Melanoma are the most common types of skin cancer. Early detection is important to achieve a lasting cure and Dr Gillespie & Dr Sippe are expert at detecting cancers and advising on the most appropriate treatment. Surgery is not always a necessary option. Dr Gillespie & Dr Sippe can also check for suspicious moles and in many cases patients are able to avoid unnecessary operations on benign lesions which can result in unsightly scarring.
If surgery is necessary, then most lesions can be excised in our fully equipped operating room with accredited sterilisation facilities.
