Dr D'ippolito completed his initial medical education in Italy and began working at a Consultant level for the NHS in 2007. He is a 'double board certified' Dermatologist holding both the EU and UK equivalent Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training; he is on the GMC Specialist Register of Dermatology. Also his European CCST includes Venereology which adds an extra dimension to his work in the area of male genital skin problems.
During his NHS career he was a lead member of a widely respected team at Frimley Park Hospital, which is the only hospital in the UK to have been rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission – standards which are maintained through rigorous and regular peer review.
At Frimley Park he worked closely with many specialties (general surgeons, ENT surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists) to develop the therapeutic plans for patients affected by any type of skin diseases, including skin cancer such as melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. Skin cancer is in fact one of his special interests. Dr D'ippolito held the position of Lead of Skin Cancer Services at Frimley Park Hospital as well as being Lead Clinician for Male Genital Dermatoses and lead clinician for skin allergy service (patch test).
He is also closely involved with the training and education of other hospital doctors and General Practitioners in the field of Dermatology.
In addition to his work for the NHS, Dr D'ippolito's private practice covers the full range of dermatological conditions and extends into several areas that are not always provided for under the NHS.
He also conducts minor and cosmetic surgery, to remove benign and malignant (cancerous) lesions including moles, cysts, skin tags, skin cancer, skin warts, adopting the best surgical techniques to minimise scarring etc.
Married with two children, he lives in southwest London. His Private Practice is at the Spire Clare Park Hospital.
