He is on the General Medical Council’s Specialist register (4744306) as a Consultant Dermatologist acknowledging his expertise in conditions relating to the skin.
Having completed an internationally accredited Fellowship at the Skin Cancer Institute, New Zealand where he performed over 1000 cases, 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.
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). 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.
His main clinical interests are in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and 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 & sits on the Executive Committee of the British Society for Dermatological Surgery.
