I am a board-certified dermatologist with advanced fellowship training in cutaneous oncology, Mohs surgery, dermatologic surgery, and laser surgery. I specialize in the surgical treatment of early-stage melanoma and high risk non-melanoma skin cancers. I am the Director of Mohs and Dermatologic Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Mohs surgery is a specialized surgical technique with high cure rates for high risk skin cancers allowing precise removal of skin cancers while preserving the surrounding healthy tissue.

In my clinical research I am studying noninvasive imaging techniques including confocal microscopy to improve early detection of skin cancers and expedite margin detection of skin cancers during skin surgery.
