I am a Consultant Dermatologist and Specialist Dermatological Surgeon. My main clinical interests are in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. My main research interests are in highlighting surgical techniques that provide patients with the best results. I am a leading expert in Mohs micrographic surgery – the Gold Standard treatment for treating many skin cancers.
I completed my dermatology training in Cambridge, UK where I developed my interest in skin cancer and dermatological surgery. I then went onto complete the prestigious American College of Mohs Surgery Fellowship in New Zealand, making me the only American College of Mohs surgery accredited surgeon in Kent. As Surgical Lead at East Kent University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, I have driven change in enhancing the skin cancer service to improve the overall patient experience. I work full time in the private sector in Kent and Harley Street and have set up a new NHS Teledermatology service.
I have performed over 15,000 routine dermatological skin surgery procedures and over 2,000 Mohs Micrographic Surgical Cases in both my NHS and private practice. The surgical case mix includes skin cancer surgery, removal of moles and lumps and bumps and scar revision.
I am regularly invited to lecture for the British Society for Dermatological Surgery and the British Medical Journal for whom I have also written book chapters for General Practitioners. I am an active member of the British Association of Dermatologists and British Society for Dermatological Surgery and am regularly invited to speak nationally and internationally. I regularly lecture for the British Medical Journal and have written several book chapters. I am also Co-Editor for Clinical Experimental Dermatology.
