He has worked as a Specialist Dermatologist at the Manchester Royal Infirmary, and is the first South African Dermatologist to complete a Fellowship in Dermatologic Surgery and Mohs Micrographic Surgery, at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle -upon- Tyne, UK.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is currently the treatment of choice for high risk non - melanoma skin cancers. The dermatologist acts as the surgeon and pathologist, using frozen tissue sections and careful orientation of the specimen, to map the tumour with the aid of a microscope. It is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetic and has the highest cure rate, while at the same time preserving normal tissue. After the tumour is removed, the wound is repaired to give the best possible functional and cosmetic result.

He has extensive experience in skin cancer and melanoma screening and in the analysis of moles with a Dermatoscope. This is a speacialised hand - held instrument which requires a high degree of expertise to use, and has been shown internationally to improve melanoma diagnosis.
