The Skin Cancer Clinic
Whitford City Family Practice has a state of the art skin cancer/mole mapping machine. This machine enables us to keep an accurate photographic comparison from check-up to check-up and see if any changes are taking place. On most days we have dedicated times for skin cancer removal and undertake the surgery right here at our premises. All our doctors have done extensive studies in skin cancer surgery.
Non-Surgical Advanced Skin and Anti-Aging Treatments
All our treatments are performed by or directly monitored by your treating doctor.
Chemical skin peeling promotes healthy changes in your skin and helps to reduce the visible signs of ageing.
Botulinum toxin fillers
As we age, wrinkles become more noticeable. These injections work on supporting muscles and plump up the skin, and this flattens the appearance of wrinkles.
Many aging and anti wrinkle treatments are available so come and see our doctors to discuss the treatment type and options that will suit your skin.

I have worked with various sports teams (Swan District Football club, Warrick Football Club, Swan Athletic Football club) and enjoy getting people back doing the activity and fitness they enjoy particularly after injury. In your appointment I run through a thorough assessment and assess any biomechanical issues that may need correcting with exercises and orthotics. I have experience running clinical pilates which I have run weekly for the past 6 years. Often with sitting people get very stiff and pilates is a great form of exercise to improve flexibility and reduce muscle tension.
