Chronic Disease Management

Our Better Health” programmes comprise special clinics dedicated to improving the health of patients with existing or potential chronic health problems and patients are encouraged to discuss their ongoing health management and any concerns with their doctor.

Skin Cancer Checks and Management

Dr Thilan Walgamage is a General Practitioner (GP) with extensive surgical skills – he has undergone training over seven years in general surgery, plastic surgery and transplant surgery. Dr Walgamage was an advanced trainee in cardiothoracic surgery before he transitioned to becoming an emergency physician and GP. Dr Walgamage has since focussed on up-skilling his surgical training towards skin cancer medicine and surgery – he holds a Professional Certificate in Skin Cancer Medicine and a Professional Certificate in Skin Cancer Surgery from HealthCert – a training organisation accredited by the Skin Cancer Institute in Australia and New Zealand and recognised by the International Dermoscopy Society. He is also undertaking the Certificate in Primary Care Dermatology by Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

Dr Walgamage is happy to provide general skin examinations, minor skin cancer surgeries and advanced skin cancer surgical procedures including skin grafts and flap repairs when clinically indicated.

Dr Walgamage conducts weekly clinics for skin cancer checks and surgery at
Queen Street Medical Centre Moruya.
Tuesday (afternoon clinic) – skin examinations
Thursday (morning clinic) – surgical procedures
