MOHS SURGERY

MOHS SURGERY

Mohs surgery is a technique that provides the highest clearance rates of tumors in cosmetically sensitive regions.

This is accomplished by microscopic evaluation of the entire edge of a tumor, unlike traditional methods that can only visualize a small percentage of the tumor’s edge. Once your tumor is removed, our 3 ACGME fellowship trained surgeons strive to give you the highest quality cosmetic result and will follow along with you through the entire healing process.

At Associates in Dermatology, we provide comprehensive surgical care for a variety of dermatological conditions.
