Skin Cancer Surgery
Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the United States, and depending on the type, can be very dangerous. Surgery is often necessary to treat the various types of skin cancer.
At Dermatology Consultants, our skilled dermatologists have wide range of options for treating skin cancers, including surgical removal of the tissue, cryosurgery (freezing the cells), laser removal and photodynamic therapy (using a light-sensitive medication with a laser). Skin cancer surgery is usually done right in our office and typically takes only a few minutes.
When one of our dermatologists detects cells that may be cancerous in your skin, he or she will conduct a thorough examination, typically involving a biopsy, to make an accurate diagnosis. Then he or she will determine if surgery is right for you, and what kind of surgery is ideal for your case.
