Welcome to www.keloids.co.uk- A website designed and dedicated to the service of people suffering from keloids and also for those involved in their management.
This website has been created by a team of dedicated and motivated scientists and plastic surgeons who are keen on making a difference in the lives of people affected with keloids.
The majority of the founding team is based at the Royal London Hospital which boasts of the only dedicated NHS Keloid clinic in UK to date. We are also closely linked with the Centre for Cutaneous Research at the Institute of Cell and Molecular Science - A premier centre for skin diseases and wound healing research.
The Keloid research network aims to provide an information platform for people all across the world on various aspects of keloids and scars. This includes aspects related to causes, methods of prevention, different management procedures and insight into ongoing research. The website also provides uptodate peer reviewed keloid related literature.
Thus the website provides information for the patients and also aims to enhance the knowledge and skills of the medical and scientific staff working in this area.Through this website we intend to increase the awareness on keloids, their related matters and to raise money through donations for investment into keloid research.
