Special Interests

Dr Walker pioneered both micrographic (Mohs’) surgery and laser surgery in the UK and maintains an active interest in both these areas. These interests mean a significant part of his practice is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of skin cancer. Lasers have many applications in the aesthetic aspects of dermatology and this too forms an important part of the practice as well as the use of lasers for treating birthmarks and other skin conditions.
