Houston dermatologist, Dr. Arash Kimyai-Asadi, serves DermSurgery as dermatology specialist experienced in laser surgery, Mohs surgery, skin cancer and many cosmetic dermatology disciplines. Arash Kimyai-Asadi, M.D. is a board-certified Dermatologist specializing in Mohs micrographic surgery for the treatment of skin cancers. During his 3 years as an undergraduate student at the Johns Hopkins University School of Arts and Science, he completed a triple major, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with Bachelors of Arts in Biology, Philosophy, and Psychology. He subsequently attended medical school at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his dermatology training at the prestigious Ronald O.

Dr. Asadi has published over 75 articles and book chapters in clinical and surgical dermatology. His current research focuses on techniques that improve cancer detection at surgical margins thereby minimizing recurrence rates after cancers are surgically removed, as well as improved techniques for aesthetic reconstruction of the face after skin cancer removal. He is regularly invited to present his techniques and research findings at national meetings that focus on dermatologic and reconstructive surgery. He is a member of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Academy of Dermatology.
