Mohs Faculty
Mohs Fellowship Program Director, Dr. Ramona Behshad

Our fellows are offered the highest level of training in skin cancer surgery, post-skin cancer reconstruction and aesthetic dermatology.

Our Mohs unit serves as a tertiary referral center for the greater St. Louis region. We perform more than 2,500 Mohs cases annually and a full range of reconstructions including all manner of local and interpolation flaps.

The Mohs surgery unit has two full-time fellowship-trained faculty members. Additionally, our department has a full-time cosmetics unit, which is staffed with two full-time faculty members offering state-of-the-art cosmetic care. We accept applications for the fellowship through the San Francisco Match. For more information about the fellowship, contact program coordinator Joey Michelle Weissmann joey.weissmann@health.slu.edu.
