We have access to dedicated children’s ward facilities and nursing, and specialist children’s anaesthetists. We can treat a range of conditions in children including birthmarks, scars, lumps and bumps, prominent ears and hand conditions.

Caring for children requires a specialist team approach, particularly for more complex conditions. I recognise the need to consider not only the physical but the psychological and social well-being of the child and family.

A large part of my practice in the NHS involves caring for children with a range of conditions including:

  • Complex hand problems
  • Cleft hand (Poland’s Syndrome)
  • Hypoplastic thumbs
  • Trigger thumb
  • Congenital hand anomalies
  • Underdeveloped hand (symbrachydactyly)
  • Nerve injuries (Obstetric brachial plexus palsy)
  • Vascular malformations
  • Haemangioma
  • Polydactyly (Extra digits)
  • Syndactyly (Fused fingers)
  • Clinodactyly
  • Skin tags
