Our Philosophy 

We strive to deliver first class Primary Care (General Practice) Dermatology services to the entire family, focusing on early detection & management of skin cancers, treating common skin diseases and offering minor skin surgical procedures including skin cancer surgeries.

 

Who We Are & What We Do.

Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic was created to give its patients an easy, convenient location to address any skin related issues or complaints. Our GPs are qualified as specialists in skin care and general dermatology. We are dedicated to prevention and early detection of skin conditions including melanoma and non melanoma skin cancers allowing for quick, effective surgical and non surgical treatment whenever possible.

Dr Pradeep Dissanayake is the founding doctor at Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic. Pradeep is a GP with special interest in skin cancer medicine, skin cancer surgery, general dermatology, and minor skin surgical procedures. He has undergone specific postgraduate medical education and training in primary care (general practice) skin cancer medicine and general dermatology and skin surgery in Australia and the UK. Pradeep is a qualified and experienced skin cancer doctor accredited by the Skin Cancer College of Australasia.

Our main philosophy revolves around the early detection and treatment of skin cancers.

We are here to support and educate the local community in the fight against dangerous skin cancers like melanoma, as well as less aggressive forms of skin cancer like basal and squamous cell carcinomas.

We are here to teach you how to keep an eye on suspicious moles, blemishes and marks and to give you regular skin checks and mole mapping so you’re always one step ahead of danger.

We are also strong advocates of prevention and will recommend the use of sun screen year round, hats and sun safe clothing and swimwear for people of all ages. Sun safety isn’t just for kids. Everyone can benefit from taking a few simple steps before they venture out into the strong Australian sun.

We believe everyone has the right to feel comfortable and happy in their own skin, so we also provide dermatological services for a range of skin conditions. See our Skin Disease Page for more information.

We will also give you advice on how best to protect your skin from the elements and prevent further damage.

We collaborate with other medical and allied health specialists to bring you the best possible skin related health service. We undertake most skin cancer surgeries and minor surgical procedures in our rooms, and at times refer you on to quality specialists if needed for advanced care.

At Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic, we use state of the art mole mapping system and dermoscopes (skin surface microscopes) to detect early melanomas and non-melanoma skin cancers. We offer services of skin cancer care, general dermatology (skin disease) and all types of skin surgeries including skin cancer surgeries.

Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic is located at 116 Punt Road, Windsor, Victoria, 3181.
