Dr Kenneth Wong is a specialist dermatologist and a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. He obtained his primary medical degree at the University of Auckland in 2003. He completed his post-graduate physician training at North Shore Hospital and Auckland City Hospital.

He then undertook advanced dermatology training at Greenlane Clinical Centre and Middlemore Hospital for 2 years, followed by a Dermatology Fellowship in the United Kingdom for a further 2 years. This was first undertaken at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh where he consolidated his experience in advanced psoriasis management (this was one of the first centres to employ ustekinumab for this condition), paediatric dermatology, hyperhidrosis management (including botulinum toxin / Botox® injections), skin cancer treatment, melanoma management and dermatological surgery.

Subsequently, he trained at Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, an internationally renowned centre for photodermatology. Here, he gained further experience in phototherapy, photodynamic therapy and phototesting. In addition, he also received training in Mohs’ micrographic surgery and undertook research in microscopy coil MRI (micro-MRI) in pre-operative staging of skin tumours. He presented this research at the British Association of Dermatologists Annual Meeting in London in 2011. During his time in Scotland he expanded his clinical experience through working at various district hospitals including St. Andrews Hospital, Victoria Hospital and Perth Royal Infirmary.

He then travelled to London where he was awarded a training post at the prestigious Imperial College NHS Trust hospitals (St Mary’s and Charing Cross Hospital) followed by a posting at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. Here, he received advanced training in dermatopathology, medical dermatology, patch testing and paediatric dermatology. At Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, he was privileged to work with United Kingdom’s foremost experts in genital dermatology and HIV dermatology.

He has presented at various dermatology conferences internationally and was awarded the Royal Society of Medicine Prize for best presentation in 2012. He has published papers in several peer-reviewed journals. He is also currently a consultant dermatologist at North Shore Hospital and Waitakere Hospital.

His special interests in dermatology are medical dermatology (e.g. acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea), surgical and non-surgical management of skin cancers, male genital dermatology and paediatric dermatology.
