Mohs Surgery has the highest cure rate of any other skin cancer treatment. Mohs surgery involves the repeated removal and examination of thin layers of cancerous tissue.
With Surgical Excision, a surgeon removes the cancerous tissue, and the area is closed with stitches or repaired with a skin graft or flap.
Curettage is a treatment often used for smaller lesions. With this treatment, a surgeon scrapes off a small cancerous growth with a surgical instrument with a sharp, ring-shaped tip. The surgeon then uses heat to destroy the residual tumor and control bleeding.
Cryosurgery is where a dermatologist applies liquid nitrogen with a swab or spray to freeze and destroy the tumor.
Radiation Therapy is a treatment for skin cancers that are not operable. Our team of dermatologists and staff work with radiation oncology when this type of treatment is deemed necessary. With radiation therapy, an oncologist will use radiation to target cancer cells so that minimal radiation affects surrounding healthy tissue.
