How to Use the Principle of Hydrodissection in Skin Cancer Surgery

If you perform skin cancer surgery in your practice, you might be interested to see the 1-minute video below with experienced skin cancer doctor Hamilton Ayres. Dr Ayres uses the principle of hydrodissection to remove a lesion on a patient’s ear. The injected fluid helps to separate the tissue planes and facilitates excision.

The program includes theory and surgical practical sessions on:

  • Advanced Dermoacopy
  • Curettage and Cautery
  • Diathermy
  • Advanced biopsy techniques
  • Topical treatment options
  • Local anaesthetics
  • Incisions / Haemostasis
  • Large elliptical excisions
  • Lower leg grafts
  • suturing, including “paper-thin” skin

Our team of industry leaders and experienced skin cancer doctors will guide you in your learning and skills practice throughout the weekend and beyond. Upon completion of the course, you will receive unlimited access to additional online learning resources and alumni webinars with course revisions, case discussions and Q&A with the instructors.

  1. Hi
    Can you please give me advice on treating patients with electrocautery who have had joint replacements. The product manual says to avoid this but with so many patients with artificial joints what is the best management.
    many Thanks
