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
- Polydactyly (Extra digits)
- Syndactyly (Fused fingers)
- Skin tags
