Skin Cancer Procedures
An annual skin screening can save your life and is vital in preventing skin cancer. The sooner preventative measures are taken; the better your chances are it won’t spread. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, skin cancer is the most prevalent of all types of cancers. It is estimated that more than one million Americans develop skin cancer every year. With that in mind, we offer a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatments to eliminate this disease. Mole removal, cryosurgery, photodynamic therapy, lasers, and medications are just some of the alternatives available to treat them. Please contact our office for a skin screening or diagnosis and treatment of any skin problem.
If skin cancers worsen, then surgery will be necessary to remove them. Treatment of skin cancers utilizing the MOHS surgery technique is one of our areas of expertise. This micrographically controlled surgery is extremely accurate and necessary to ensure complete removal of the cancer, allowing for the best possible aesthetic outcome. This procedure is performed in our highly accredited surgical suite.
