Dr. Vitaly Terushkin is a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon and a board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist. He currently practices Mohs surgery in New York and New Jersey. He is also a Clinical Instructor in Dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College. His interests include Mohs surgery for melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (ie. squamous cell and basal cell carcinoma) as well as skin cancer reconstruction. He has performed over 3,500 Mohs surgeries since completing his Mohs surgery fellowship. At the present time, he is one of the select few Mohs surgeons in Manhattan to treat melanoma with Mohs surgery and immunohistochemical stains (ie. MART-1). Dr. Terushkin graduated summa cum laude from Brandeis University with a degree in Neuroscience and subsequently attended New York University (NYU) School of Medicine. After completing an internship in internal medicine at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, he returned to NYU for his dermatology training where he served as a Chief Resident during his final year. Dr. Terushkin sought additional specialized training and completed a fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery and dermatologic oncology under the guidance of Drs. Zitelli and Brodland, recognized leaders in the field. He then returned to NYU to complete a fellowship in dermatopathology, making him one of a few dermatologists in the country to be fellowship-trained in both Mohs surgery and dermatopathology.
