Having been trained in Plastic & Reconstructive surgery, Mr Tehrani then undertook further specialist training in Skin cancer management, Mohs surgery and Laser surgery.
He is the Lead Surgeon of the Mersey Centre for Mohs Surgery, and is the UK's first Plastic surgeon (and one of very few in the world) to have a specialist interest in Mohs surgery.
Mr Tehrani is also a core member of the Mersey & Cheshire specialist skin mutidisciplinary team, helping to advise on the management of patients with skin cancer across the North West and North Wales.
Mr Tehrani's Mohs surgery and skin cancer experience has led to him being a member of both the UK group on Mohs surgery standards, and the UK advisory group on skin cancer diagnosis. These groups provide guidance and information to specialists throughout the UK and globally.
He also represents the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgeons on the development of skin cancer care both nationally and internationally.
He teaches surgeons of all standards, and is a trainer on facial reconstruction for the Royal College of Surgeons.
Mr Tehrani constantly strives to improve patient care, and provides latest techniques and treatment for his patients. He will discuss options with all his patients, involving them in their care and decision making to ensure their treatment pathway is tailored to their individual needs.
Having a procedure can be a stressful and worrying time, and Mr Tehrani works hard with his team to put patients at ease and produce a relaxed but professional atmosphere whenever possible. This way, he aims to provide not only the best treatment, but also the best care possible.
