This practice is devoted to the surgical treatment of skin cancer. Our board certified, fellowship trained physicians use the Mohs procedure to treat cancers in the office using local anesthetic. The cancers are examined microscopically, mapped, and removed in a very precise fashion. We can then repair the resulting defect with reconstructive surgery on the same day.
