A NEW CLINIC with a focus on skin health and mole mapping has opened in the heart of Limerick.

Rose Clinic is blooming at its new outlet at the Beacon Hospital which has its Limerick base in Barrington Street in the heart of the city.

The facility employs a team of experienced practitioners including surgeons, doctors and melanographers with the focus on skin health and mole mapping.

The medical team uses the latest artificial intelligence screening technology to guide decision making.

The Barrington Street clinic has now opened, with a significant amount of interest from people looking to book appointments.

The technology deployed offers a layered screening process that uses total body mapping with digital dermoscopy and artificial intelligence technology, combined with physical analysis of moles.

Annual digital screening with digital 3D imaging and artificial intelligence technology allows for early detection of melanoma and other common skin cancers which can greatly improve the prognosis.

Rose Clinic Limerick manager Mairead Cheevers said: “We are delighted to have opened the Rose Clinic in Limerick. With Rose Clinic, we are giving people an option to self refer to check their skin, and to identify any issues of concern. During these summer months, people will expose their skin more and perhaps become more aware of changes that need to be checked. We know that screening for cancer works, and Rose Clinic Limerick is deploying the latest technology to identify issues of concern.”

Rose Clinic is owned by Professor H. Paul Redmond, the professor and chairman of the Department of Surgery at Cork University Hospital Group.

His special interest is in surgical oncology, and his work is focused on cancer awareness, screening and prevention.
