What makes us different?

Unlike the other private hospitals in Edinburgh, Waterfront Private Hospital focuses exclusively on skin surgery, procedural dermatology, plastic surgery and hand surgery. This targeted approach allows us to deliver highly specialised care in these allied fields. We offer comprehensive care for benign skin lesions, skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, and elective soft tissue hand surgery. In addition, we provide the full spectrum of cosmetic surgery services. The Waterfront Hospital facilities have been designed specifically to meet the needs of our patients with both outpatient local anaesthetic procedures and day-case general anaesthetic surgery available in our custom-built new premises.

We understand the importance of timely medical intervention. As a new institution, we can accommodate patients with significantly shorter waiting times than other local facilities.

First class service

I would highly recommend the Waterfront Hospital. All members of staff I encountered were professional, kind and reassuring. I saw Dr Ben Aldridge and underwent a minor surgical procedure. From start to finish, the service was delivered to an extremely high standard. Many thanks.
