Do you know any doctors? Ideally ones who work in a hospital. They are bound to have contacts who will know someone... is there any reason why you don't trust the person you're being sent to?

Simon Lee at Bristol Children's and Bristol Spire. He is the go-to man for children's hands in the SW and also loads of glamour models use him for breast augmentation, so a man of many parts.

Yes, it depends on the part of the body really as some are better qualified for ears and some for hands - finger injuries. You also need to consider the aneathetist. In trauma surgery you may not get an expert in paediatric care which is a problem to which I can attest from personal experience. But normally with planned surgery undertaken privately the surgeon can recommend his chap or lady who they like working with.

Man of many parts, heh.

Bravo for not resisting the urge.



What are we talking here? Pinning taxi door ears back, sorting out a birthmark or scar, restorative surgery following an injury or burn... or are you planning to go large on the youth's love of "pranking" and pinning a huge pair of tits on the poor boy or maybe giving your daughter a 9 inch schlong?

I should think Lydia has views on this.

Thank you all, have ended up booking one of the GOSH consultants on recommendation from a friend.

Analysis and probably removal of a tumour from our 3 month old's face - possibly covered by our insurance and were keen to get straight onto a plastic surgeon rather than down the general paediatric route as rather keen to minimise scarring.

I don't want to scare you and hope you don't mind me saying but do me a favour and get a paed oncologist just to check it out too. Know of a case where plastics dealt with it but it should have been referred to an oncologist early on too.

This. If you really mean tumour rather than some sort of classifiable benign growth then oncology advice on a scan of the rest of him/her would be an excellent idea as well.

It's a classic position for a dermoid cyst so still very much hoping a benign tumour rather than the big C, but yes that is one of the things we want addressed / are worried about.
