Dr Mallipeddi is one of the few Mohs surgeons 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.

He is also the Lead for skin cancer at Guys and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and is past President of 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.
