About me

Dr Arif Aslam is an expert in skin disease, skin cancer, skin surgery, cosmetic and laser dermatology and is the only fellowship trained Mohs micrographic surgeon in Lancashire.

He graduated from the University of Dundee School of Medicine in 2004 and completed postgraduate training in both general medicine (MRCP) and general practice (MRCGP) in the North West deanery. He specialised in dermatology at the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre, Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust where he developed his interest in skin cancer, dermatological surgery and laser dermatology.

He then went on to a complete a 12 month fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery and laser dermatology at the Nottingham NHS Treatment Centre where he personally performed over 1000 surgical procedures. He consolidated his fellowship with further training at Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology, Mohs and Dermatologic Surgery, The Skin Cancer Center in Cincinnati and University of Vermont.

Mohs micrographic surgery is a dermatologist provided scar-minimising surgical technique for skin cancer which has the highest cure rate of any treatment. Mohs surgery is a highly specialised and precise treatment for skin cancer using a microscope at the time of surgery to ensure all the roots of a skin cancer are entirely removed.

A strong believer in evidence-based medicine he regularly attends top research meetings in surgical and laser dermatology and has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, textbook chapters and has given presentations at national and international scientific meetings.
