Mohs workshop at Skinmatters Mohs Unit by International Mohs Surgeons

At the 2015 combined annual conference of the South African Society of Dermatological Surgery and the Dermatological Society of South Africa we were privileged to have three international renowned Mohs surgeons as invited guests of the conference.

Immediately following the conference, the Mohs surgery unit at Life Brooklyn Day Hospital hosted the three Mohs surgeons, Drs Glenn Goldman and Todd Holmes from Vermont in the United States, and Professor Carl Vinciullo from Perth in Australia, in a workshop where complicated cases were treated by the Mohs surgeons over the course of two days.

The workshops were attended on each day by five local South African dermatologists interested in Mohs and skin cancer surgery.

The attending South African dermatologists came from all over the country.

Very difficult cases were treated and reconstructed while continuous teaching was provided to the attendees. The international Mohs surgeons also taught new frozen section histology laboratory techniques to the histotechnologist in the Mohs laboratory.

The two-day workshop was a tremendous opportunity and a fantastic experience for everyone involved.
