Mohs Surgery Lakewood Ranch FL
Mohs Surgery Available to Residents of Lakewood Ranch, FL
Mohs surgery is an advanced treatment option for patients with certain types of skin cancer. Individuals in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, can find this procedure offered nearby at Dermatology Associates. Our skin care experts are highly experienced in treating all types of medical and cosmetic skin conditions, and our team includes a dermatologist who has completed special training and certification to perform Mohs surgery.
This surgical procedure is a highly precise skin cancer treatment that involves scraping away one layer of the skin lesion at a time to remove the cancerous cells. Each layer is immediately inspected using a microscope to check for cancer cells, and this process is repeated until no more cancer cells are detected. Because of the level of precision involved, Mohs surgery offers better cure rates than standard excisions while also sparing the largest amount of healthy tissue surrounding the lesion. These aspects make this procedure particularly beneficial for skin cancers that appear in sensitive areas, such as the face.
