Dr Mark Gray obtained his primary medical degree at the University of Otago in 1982. He then underwent postgraduate training in anatomic pathology and dermatopathology at Harvard Medical School/Massachusetts General Hospital and Cornell University/New York Hospital, completing this in 1990. Dr Gray then went on to complete his training in Dermatology and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in Canada (Dermatology) in 1993. In 2010 he became a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. He is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists of Australasia and is Board Certified in the United States in both Pathology and Dermatopathology. He is a fellow of the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Mohs Surgery. He is the founding Director of the Skin Institute group of clinics.
Dr Gray's special interests include skin cancer, in particular complex skin cancer surgery involving reconstruction of the head and neck area utilising the Mohs micrographic method. Dr Gray has been practising Mohs surgery for over 10 years. Dr Gray is currently working in a multidisciplinary group of specialist surgeons from Head and Neck surgery, Facial Plastic Surgery, Ear, Nose and Throat surgery, Plastic Surgery and General Surgery within the Skin Institute group of clinics.
Mohs surgery is a method for removing skin cancers using a microscope to determine that a skin cancer has been completely removed before the defect is closed. This is highly specialised work where the dermatological surgeon also plays the role of pathologist in ensuring the skin cancers are removed completely at the time of surgery. This method is also tissue sparing which means that the skin cancer is removed with a minimum of sacrifice to the surrounding skin. This permits the best cosmetic outcome by ensuring that the wound is as small as it needs to be. Dr Gray is highly skilled in reconstruction following removal of skin cancers by Mohs surgery.
Dr Gray's Mohs surgery practice is unique in that it commonly involves the interaction with a number of other surgical specialists in the Skin Institute group, in particular head and neck surgery, facial plastic surgery and ear nose and throat surgery. The multidisciplinary nature of the Skin Institute is a key factor in determining optimum outcomes for advanced skin cancer surgeries.
Dr Gray's other primary interest is liposuction. He has been performing liposuction for over a decade. He is the only liposuction surgeon in the country to be certified as a Hi-definition Liposuction surgeon. More information on Hi-Definition Liposuction and Liposuction can be found on the Skin Institute website.
Dr Gray is a member of The American Academy of Dermatology, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Mohs Surgery, the New Zealand Dermatological Society and the American Society for Dermatological Surgery.
