Boca Raton area dermatologist describes the benefits of Mohs surgery for skin cancer patients

A diagnosis of skin cancer can be a devastating experience for anyone. However, thanks to improved technologies, patients can undergo effective treatments such as Mohs surgery with highly successful results.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery for skin cancer is available at the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine in Boca Raton. Dr. Andrea Chen, a board certified Mohs Micrographic surgeon, along with her talented team of healthcare professionals, treat patients who have been diagnosed with skin cancer by removing the cancerous cells microscopically. Unlike a simple excision of the cancer, there are several benefits to undergoing this method.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is done for many types of skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. It has the best cure rate, at 99% effective, versus other methods of treatment including radiation and non-surgical methodologies.

Mohs surgery is done during a single appointment in which the skin is checked for cancerous cells repeatedly. This ensures all areas of cancer are removed before the wound is sutured to heal. This reduces the possibility of reoccurrence or the need for future surgeries, while keeping the surgical site as small as possible.

Pathology results from Mohs micrographic surgery are immediate, which allows patients to know the results of their tests as soon as possible instead of the anxious waiting often associated with medical testing. Patients can rest easy knowing their test results and having their treatment done by a board certified dermatologist.

Mohs is preferred over traditional excision because it helps in maintaining as much healthy skin tissue as possible. This improves the results cosmetically and it is highly recommended for very visible areas of the skin such as the face or hands. It leaves very small scars, if any, in many instances.

Mohs surgery is a very precise procedure that requires a steady hand and extensive training to provide effective results. Patients with a skin cancer diagnosis are encouraged to contact Dr. Rendon and the team of professionals at the Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine today. Schedule a consultation to learn more about this procedure and discover how it can improve your life today!

"Dr. Rendon and her staff are very knowledge. By far the best experience I've had at a dermatology office. Dr Rendon spotted a lesion on me that another derm in town had left untreated. It ended up being cancerous. Don't go anywhere else!"
