About us...

NORTH WEST SYDNEY DERMATOLOGY & LASER is a specialist dermatology clinic dealing with all types of skin disorders & skin cancers. We specialise in the management of skin cancers and Dr Stephens has a special interest in the use of laser and various types of light in non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. If you have been diagnosed with a small BCC or other non-melanoma skin cancer and wish to avoid the scalpel then you may be interested to read on about the tumour "mapping" we offer (done with infra-red lasers) and  "biphasic PDT" that we perform. These innovations are not available in Australia outside of our clinics in Sydney & Noosa Heads, Queensland. We also perform surgical removals where non-surgical treatments are inappropriate. 

Dr Robert Stephens MB BS FACD is the founding dermatologist and a fellow of the Australasian College of Dermatologists. He has been appointed as a spokesperson/ advocate for the college since 2017. He received his specialist qualification in 2000. He is also a member of the American, British, European and Canadian Associations of Dermatologists. He has a special interest in photodynamic treatment of skin cancer, daylight photodynamic therapy, laser mapping of tumours (OCT), and vascular laser. He has published works in a new non-invasive treatment and has regularly been invited to present his work overseas.
