What do I do if I have a skin lesion on my back?

By |September 21st, 2018|Categories: Dermatology|

If you have a skin lesion or other growth on your back, it can be difficult to see it yourself. You can get a friend or relative to have a look, and even take a picture of it so that you can see it. But the best thing to do is to see our consultant dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Crawley, who can determine the nature of your lesion. It could be a number of things, such as a lipoma, a skin tag or a sebaceous cyst. But it could also be a type of skin cancer. If you think that you might be able to tell if it was skin cancer, given the pictures you might see on the internet of discoloured, misshapen and ugly-looking cancerous lesions, you would be wrong. A slow-growing skin cancer such as basal cell carcinoma can seem small and innocent-looking in the early stages, presenting as little more than a pinkish, pearly bump. Dr Crawley can examine your back lesion and, if necessary, carry out a simple biopsy here at Clinica London.

Troubled by skin tags? Have them removed quickly and painlessly

By |September 20th, 2018|Categories: Dermatology|

Skin tags are small growths that hang off the skin and can be irritating and embarrassing. They can catch on clothing and jewellery, and they can look unsightly. Our experienced consultant dermatologist, Dr Jennifer Crawley, can assess your skin tags and determine whether they are in fact skin tags and not some other type of suspicious lesion. Depending on where the skin tags are on the body, and how many you have, Dr Crawley can remove them easily in a simple procedure at Clinica London, where she will see you as an outpatient.

What does the orthoptist do for adult patients? Part 2

By |September 19th, 2018|Categories: General Eye Conditions|

The orthoptist plays a vital role in the treatment of adult patients suffering from eye movement, or motility, problems. Orthoptists work closely with the ophthalmic surgeons to advise on the type of surgery needed for patients suffering from a squint, and the extent of eye muscle repositioning they will need to undertake. The orthoptist can also help with the treatment of nerve palsies that cause double vision.

What does the orthoptist do for adult patients? Part 1

By |September 18th, 2018|Categories: General Eye Conditions, Jane Olver|

The orthoptist can help adults suffering from conditions such as a squint. Most commonly such adults will have had surgery to correct this problem in childhood, but over time the condition can return. The orthoptist can also help adult patients suffering from thyroid eye disease, causing double vision, and people who have sustained eye injuries as a result of accidents, who may also be suffering from double vision.

The Orthoptist’s role looking after children

By |September 17th, 2018|Categories: General Eye Conditions, Uncategorized|

Orthoptists work primarily, although not exclusively, with children. The orthoptist makes the assessment of your child's eyesight fun for them, as they use an array of small toys to assess the level of vision and eye movement. They can help children suffering from a squint, or from a lazy eye, and children with nerve or brain problems. Orthoptists are an essential part of the clinical team because they advise consultant ophthalmologists on how best to treat children with these problems. We have two orthoptists who work closely with the surgeons at Clinica London.

What is an Orthoptist and what do they do?

By |September 14th, 2018|Categories: General Eye Conditions|

Orthoptists are university-trained medical professionals who most often treat children but will also see adults for specific problems. These issues include eye motility problems (restricted movement of the eyes), amblyopia (also known as lazy eye), and strabismus (or squint), for example.
