- Hooman Khorasani, MD is an Assistant Professor of Dermatology at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. He is the Chief of Division of Mohs, Reconstructive, and Cosmetic Surgery and a board certified dermatologist and an ACGME fellowship-trained Mohs and cosmetic surgeon.
The areas of Dr. Khorasani's specialized training include skin cancer management (Melanoma, BCC, SCC); Mohs micrographic surgery; reconstructive surgery and surgery including liposuction, blepharoplasty, fat transfers, laser rejuvenation procedures, scar revisions, neurotoxins and fillers.
He is intensely interested in minimal scar wound repair, he has done extensive research in this area, recently publishing an article that introduces a groundbreaking technique deemed essential to the field of wound healing research in the American Journal of Pathology.
Dr. Khorasani is actively involved in teaching surgical and cosmetic procedures to residents and fellows from all around the world. He is the co-director of Mohs/procedural dermatology fellowship at Mt. Sinai. He is also the Chair of the Mount Sinai Spring Symposium "Advances in Facial Reconstruction & Cosmetic Surgery", a multi-specialty national reconstructive and cosmetic cadaver workshop: http://www.cosmeticcadaverworkshop.com/
A recipient of UCLAs prestigious Paulsen Scholarship, Dr. Khorasani graduated summa cum laude from that institution with a degree in Physiological Sciences and graduated in the top 5% of his medical school at the University of Southern California. Following medical school, Dr. Khorasani completed his internship in General Surgery at the USC-LA County Hospital, gaining extensive exposure to trauma and reconstructive surgery. He then completed a research fellowship in Plastic Surgery at the University of Southern California School of Medicine where he studied minimal scar wound repair.
Dr. Khorasani served as chief resident and completed his dermatology residency at NYMC Metropolitan Hospital and Montefiore North in New York City.
