Plastic Surgery

We see many different patients in our plastic surgery service, as our highly skilled surgeons perform a wide variety of surgery for different conditions.

For example we may see you for reconstructive surgery after breast or skin cancer, skin cancer excision, hand and reconstructive limb surgery, breast reduction, correction of asymmetrical breasts and congenital breast conditions, or the removal of non-cancerous moles or cysts.

You will initially be asked to come along to a clinic run by one of our consultants who will assess you and work with you to plan what treatment you may need.

We offer local treatment where possible with clinics across our hospitals. In order that you see the most appropriate person for your problem you may not always be able to be seen at your nearest clinic.

If you need surgery and it is a relatively small, simple procedure you may be able to have this as a day patient and go home the same evening. This is offered at Wansbeck, North Tyneside and Hexham general hospitals, Alnwick and Berwick infirmaries and Morpeth.

If you need more complex surgery it is likely that you will be asked to come to either Wansbeck or North Tyneside general hospital. Some patients may be offered surgery at Hexham General Hospital.

If you require microsurgery or have complicated post-operative needs you may have surgery at the Northumbria hospital in Cramlington.

After your surgery you will continue to be seen by our specialist nurses and consultants in follow-up clinics.

Some of the specialist services we are able to offer you include:

Online Consultation

Where appropriate you may be asked to attend a consultation online via a video call.

Rather than travelling to your appointment, you go into the clinic’s online ‘waiting area’. We will be notified when you arrive and your clinician will join you when ready

You don’t need to set up an account and no information you enter is stored.
