At Steth & Derm, our Dermatology Lead Dr Gradassi provides highly specialised diagnosis and treatment of hair, scalp and nail disorders.
Dr Alessandro Gradassi is an expert in the use of dermoscopy, a not invasive procedure initially developed to detect skin cancers. Its use in the evaluation of hair disorders (trichoscopy) is superior to histology examination and, when dealing with nail problems (onychoscopy) is incredibly helpful to avoid painful biopsies.
Specialist Hair Clinic
In our clinic, trichoscopy and clinical hair photography play a central role in the diagnosis of hair disorders and in monitoring the response to treatment.
For many hair problems an early diagnosis is vital. Thanks to his state-of-the-art trichoscopy skills, Dr Gradassi is able to clearly identify your hair and scalp problem and recommend treatment appropriate to the stage of disease.
We see women, men and children and can treat conditions including:
- Alopecia areata
- Androgenetic alopecia
- Telogen effluvium
- Scarring alopecias
Specialist Nail Clinic & Surgery
At Steth & Derm we pay particular attention to the health of your nails as it may provide clues to your overall health.
Some types of nail discoloration and changes in growth rate may be signs of lung, heart, kidney and liver diseases, as well as diabetes and iron deficiency anaemia. At the nail clinic we are highly experienced in diagnosing underlying general health problems as well as in treating common nail problems caused by bacterial and fungal infections, warts and less frequently nail tumours.
As a skin surgeon, Dr Gradassi has a wide experience of nail surgery and in particular of phenolisation of nail matrix, a technique incredibly helpful to resolve difficult cases of ingrown toenail.
