Dr Walayat Hussain graduated from the University of Leicester and undertook his postgraduate training at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham. He then specialised in dermatology in Manchester where he developed his interest in skin cancer and dermatological surgery. Dr Walayat Hussain is the only dermatological surgeon in the Yorkshire region to be accredited by the prestigious American College of Mohs Surgery, having undertaken a two-year fellowship at the Skin Cancer Institute, New Zealand. His main interests are in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. He specialises in Mohs surgery – a specialised technique using a microscope at the time of surgery to ensure all the roots of a skin cancer are removed. Mohs surgery offers the highest cure rate following facial skin cancer removal and subsequently allows a cosmetically pleasing repair to be performed (as the hole to remove the cancer is kept as small as possible).His main research interests are in highlighting surgical techniques that provide patients with the best results. He is one of the most widely published dermatological surgeons in the UK.
Dr Walayat Hussain is married with 5 children. He enjoys trail running and muay thai martial arts.
