The process of Mohs micrographic surgery was created by Dr. Fred Mohs when he was a medical student over fifty years ago. He developed a meticulous and precise surgical technique used for removing skin cancers.



There are times when Mohs surgery is not indicated to remove a lesion. In the consultation, your doctor may recommend other methods of treatment such as: cryotherapy (freezing), curettage and electrodesiccation (scraping and burning with an electric needle), excisional surgery, radiation therapy or "Slow Mohs" surgery.



In addition to surgery, we also offer cosmetic services. In our practice, all consultations and cosmetic procedures are performed by physicians.
