If you perform skin cancer surgery in your practice, please watch the 5-minute video below. The experienced skin cancer doctor Hamilton Ayres presents an interesting case of a SCC on his patient’s neck – a highly sensitive anatomical area often referred to as “tiger country”.

The program includes theory and surgical practical sessions on:
- Advanced Dermoacopy
- Curettage and Cautery
- Advanced biopsy techniques
- Topical treatment options
- Local anaesthetics
- Incisions / Haemostasis
- Large elliptical excisions
- Lower leg grafts
- suturing, including “paper-thin” skin
