Dr Juber Hafiji
Dr Hafiji graduated from the University of Leicester Medical School and undertook his postgraduate training at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham. He then specialised in Dermatology at Cambridge University Hospitals where he developed his interest in skin cancer and dermatological surgery.
As a Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Hafiji is recognised as an expert in all conditions relating to the skin (rashes, eczema, acne, psoriasis, warts etc). He has a specific interest in skin cancer, skin surgery, skin checks and mole assessments and is the only dermatological surgeon in Kent to be accredited by the prestigious American College of Mohs Surgery, having undertaken a two-year internationally accredited fellowship at the Skin Cancer Institute, New Zealand.
Dr Hafiji has performed over 1000 cases and is a leading expert in Mohs micrographic surgery – the Gold Standard in treating many skin cancers which utilises a specialised technique using a microscope to ensure all the roots of a skin cancer are removed.
Mohs surgery offers the highest cure rate following skin cancer removal and allows a cosmetically pleasing repair to be performed (as the hole to remove the cancer is kept as small as possible).
His main clinical interests are in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and his main research interests are in highlighting surgical techniques that provide patients with the best results.
He has published widely in the dermatological surgical literature & he is a member of the American College of Mohs Surgery, British Society for Dermatological Surgery, British Association of Dermatologists and the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group.
