Dr. Robins founded the International Society of Dermatologic Surgeons, the Skin Cancer Foundation, Dermatologic Surgery journal and the Journal of the Skin Cancer Foundation.
In his 40 years of practice he performed more than 47,000 Mohs surgeries. He has taught Mohs surgery in nearly 50 countries and in four languages.
At the time of his induction as many as 40 percent of fellowship trained Mohs surgeons can trace their training back to Dr. Robins. His trainees became the leaders who facilitated the rapid advance of Mohs and dermatologic surgery.
