Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon

Dr Lydia Morton is a qualified Doctor and Dentist specialising in the management of facial trauma and deformity, cleft, dental pathology, mouth cancer and skin cancer

Dr Lydia Morton is a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, specialising in skin cancer surgery and reconstruction. This required 25 years of training, including degrees in both Medicine and Dentistry from the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Kings College London.

The specialty of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery involves management of facial trauma and deformity, cleft, dental pathology, mouth cancer and skin cancer. Lydia has honed her surgical skills in various locations including Newcastle, London, Birmingham, the south coast of England and further afield to Costa Rica, Cuba, Venezuela and Morocco. She has also been fortunate enough to be trained by Prof Shan Baker, one of the most eminent skin cancer surgeons in the USA. Lydia has published her research and articles in specialty journals and presented at many national surgical and educational conferences.

Lydia became interested in skin cancer management in the head and neck area because of the complexities of the anatomy in this region. She understands the behaviour of skin during and after surgery and endeavours to give the best aesthetic outcomes possible. She uses the natural contours and creases of the skin to hide any surgical scarring.

Lydia works as an NHS consultant at University Sussex Hospitals NHS Trust on the south coast of England. She believes in keeping up-to-date with the latest evidence-based management and is a fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and a member of the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Women-in-Surgery, the General Medical Council and the General Dental Council.
