Skin Surgery

Skin Surgery

Our skin changes over time: most skin lesions are benign. Others can be or become cancerous. Our skin specialists perform surgery, laser surgery, cosmetic surgery and other dermatologic surgical procedures.

The focus of dermatosurgery at Helios Hospital Krefeld is the surgical removal of skin tumours. In addition, we use a wide range of surgical procedures to treat disturbing changes, diseases and injuries in a sustained manner.

Our treatment range for you:

  • Tissue removal for inflammatory diseases like acne inversa and coccyx fistula
  • Skin plasty after accidents or burns (reconstructive defect closure with flap plasty)
  • Circumcision for inflammation or narrowing of the foreskin (phimosis)
  • Removal of genital warts, a venereal disease caused by human papilloma viruses (HPV), including rectoscopy
  • Scar corrections
  • Surgical correction of so-called tuberous noses (Rhinophyma)
  • Surgical removal of moles and birthmarks (punching, scraping, laser)
  • Biopsies, including muscle biopsies

We perform many of these surgical procedures on an outpatient basis.
