Let’s Talk About Mohs Surgery
Q: Why choose Mohs surgery for skin cancer removal?
A: Mohs surgery allows preservation of the maximum amount of healthy tissue while removing all cancerous tissue. It is thus a highly desirable surgery for minimizing scarring in cosmetically sensitive areas like the face, head, and neck. Mohs allows the surgeon to examine the skin tissue layer-by-layer to make sure all of the cancerous cells are identified and completely removed on the day of surgery. This certainty comes from the way we examine tissue samples under a microscope during surgery, looking at 100% percent of the margin, to visually confirm when all of the cancerous cells have been removed.

A Once A Year Must –
Your Annual Skin Exam
Did you know that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S.? In fact, it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Remember, sun damage is cumulative so as we age so does our risk of skin cancer. That’s why we encourage everyone to take the time to schedule your annual skin exam – just like a dental checkup.
The good news is skin cancer is a treatable condition and when detected early is highly treatable.
