The Dermatologic Surgery unit provides surgical treatment and care for patients diagnosed with skin cancer including Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), and a wide spectrum of rare cancers including Dermatofibromasarcoma protuberans and Sebaceous Carcinoma.
Treatments offered include Mohs Surgery for certain types of skin cancer and other options including standard surgical excision, electrodessication and curettage, and cryosurgery, depending on the needs of the patient. We are a tertiary referral center with a strong emphasis on multidisciplinary coordination for advanced cases and compassionate patient-focused care.
Complex cases are discussed at weekly multidisciplinary tumor board conference, where colleagues from surgical and medical oncology, plastic surgery, head and neck surgery, radiation oncology and other disciplines collaborate with us to provide the best treatment for each individual.
Our surgeons are fellows of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS), the most rigorous and academically recognized accreditation body for Mohs surgeons, and have completed advanced ACMS accredited fellowship training with high standards of quality and competency in the surgical removal of skin cancers, skin cancer pathology, and advanced facial reconstruction.
