Dermatology Surgery  

 

 

 

GENERAL DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY

 

General dermatologic surgery is performed on lesions such as, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, cysts, and lipomas.  This type of minimally invasive procedure involves local anesthesia.  Patients are awake during the procedure and generally requires minimal down time. 

 

 

MOHS MICROGRAPHIC SURGERY

 

Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized, highly effective technique for the removal of skin cancer.  The procedure was developed in the 1930s by Dr. Frederic Mohs at the University of Wisconsin and is now practiced throughout the world.  Mohs surgery differs from other skin cancer treatments in that it permits the immediate and complete microscopic examination of the removed cancerous tissue, so that all "roots" and extensions of the cancer can be eliminated.  Due to the methodical manner in which tissue is removed and examined, Mohs surgery has been recognized as the skin cancer treatment with the highest cure.
