Spring K. Golden
Born and raised in Hawai‘i, Dr. Spring Golden is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs Micrographic surgeon specializing in skin cancer surgery and subsequent reconstruction. The Punahou School graduate continued her education at Stanford University before returning home to receive her medical degree from the John A. Burns School of Medicine, during which she was inducted into the medical honors society Alpha Omega Alpha (AOA).
Dr. Golden is one of just a handful of doctors on-island specially trained to perform Mohs Micrographic Surgery, a procedure used to treat skin cancers and certain tumors. Unique to this type of surgery, Mohs Micrographic Surgery is minimally invasive, precise and only uses local anesthetic, leading to a high cure rate and less damage to healthy skin.
Dr. Golden completed her dermatology residency at Oregon Health and Science University, during which time she also served as chief dermatology resident. She remained at Oregon Health and Science University for her subspecialty fellowship training in Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology, and served as an Assistant Professor of Dermatology prior to her return home. She is a member of the Hawai‘i Dermatologic Society, American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American College of Mohs Surgery.
