Career and experience:

Karl graduated from the University of Bristol in 1988, and is a member of the Primary Care Dermatology Society and Association of Surgeons in Primary Care. He has a special interest in skin lesion diagnosis and is trained in using dermoscopy (skin surface microscopy) to evaluate skin lesions.
As a vasectomy surgeon, he has been performing non-scalpel vasectomies for more than ten years. He also has a Diploma in Sport and Exercise Medicine, and is a strong advocate of maintaining health and wellbeing through exercise and lifestyle choices.

Karl says:

“I am keen to provide a safe, efficient and cost effective service for small skin lesions not needing to be treated in a hospital.
I always try to keep procedures as simple as possible and am unashamedly an expert in minor procedures and local anaesthetics not major surgery.”
