Experienced and highly trained skin cancer and laser specialist in London
Dr Mallipeddi is one of the few dermatologists in the UK who has completed advanced training in Mohs micrographic surgery
, which is certified by The American College of Mohs Surgery
. Mohs micrographic surgery provides assessment of the pathology during skin cancer removal so that the cancer is traced down to its roots. This achieves the highest cure rate for many skin cancers
(typically basal cell carcinoma
and squamous cell carcinoma
on the face) yet removes the least amount of normal tissue and therefore may reduce scarring. Since 2008 he has been the Clinical Director of The Dermatological Surgery and Laser Unit at St John's Institute of Dermatology
, St Thomas' Hospital
, London. He is also the Lead for skin cancer at Guys and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and is on the executive committee for the British Society for Dermatological Surgery. He sees referrals from across the country
and supervises the training of dermatologists in all aspects of skin surgery and lasers.
