Dr El-Jabbour heads our laboratory facilities, adding key scientific input for diagnosis and monitoring.
As part of specialist techniques such as Mohs micrographic surgery, or for diagnosis, tissue analysis is a core part of dermatology. To provide insight and to offer certainty when doubt could hinder effective treatment.
Technology has brought alternatives for viewing tissue, such as confocal microscopy. There is still no replacement for the skilled human eye and years of knowledge, to interpret the microscopic appearance of a biopsy.
Efficient laboratory work brings other advantages, reduced waiting time, perhaps less biopsies. Accuracy is the key, although any inconvenience to patients which can be avoided is an asset to their treatment.
With 22 years experience in pathology, 12 years at consultant level, Dr El-Jabbour’s skills are welcomed. He has worked in the NHS and private sector, along with founding Cellular Pathology Services, a respected independent laboratory.
The techniques developed there build on the delivery of IT and pathology services he led at other hospitals. Dr El-Jabbour has also represented hospital trusts, on modernization boards for IT services in pathology.
The practical expertise he brings to Skin Care Network is a cornerstone of our support to patients. The latest science should mix with good care, to ensure the best possible outcome for all our patients.
