Mohs Micrographic Surgery – the ‘gold standard’ of facial skin cancer treatment
Dr Hussain is nationally recognised as a leading expert in Mohs micrographic surgery – a specialised technique using a microscope to ensure all the ‘roots’ of a skin cancer are removed. Studies have shown that Mohs surgery offers the highest cure rate following skin cancer removal and allows a cosmetically pleasing repair to be performed (as the hole to remove the cancer is kept as small as possible). For this reason, it is undoubtedly considered to be the ‘gold standard’ surgical treatment of facial skin cancer and some other body sites too.
Dr Hussain’s expertise is such that he is the only dermatological surgeon in all of Yorkshire to be accredited by the prestigious American College of Mohs Surgery, the world’s leading Mohs surgery institution. You should not be afraid of asking your doctor about their level of training and experience in Mohs surgery. Dr Hussain has performed thousands of Mohs cases during his career to date and continues to perform hundreds of cases each year. He will diagnose your skin cancer, remove it using the Mohs technique, interpret the microscope slides himself AND reconstruct the wound. If your skin cancer does not require Mohs surgery or requires the input of other specialists, Dr Hussain will discuss this with you from the onset.
