Dermatologic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology

The Dermatologic and Laser Surgery Unit focuses on skin conditions amenable to surgical or laser intervention.

The keystone of the program is a technique known as Microscopically Controlled Excision (Mohs Technique), applied specifically for recurrent or other high risk skin cancers.

It provides the highest cure rate for selected tumors and permits immediate reconstruction for the convenience of the patient.

Sophisticated approaches for the management of other complicated or rare skin cancers are also provided.
