Why Opt for MOHS Surgery or Skin Cancer Care?
A surgery that typically carries the highest possible cure rate.
The most common type of cancer in the world, skin cancer impacts one in five Americans at some point during their lives. Fortunately, skin cancer is often easy to treat if caught early by removing cancerous cells. One of the most common and effective methods for this is the MOHS technique, developed by Dr. Frederic Mohs.
MOHS surgery preserves as much healthy tissue surrounding the cancerous growth as possible. As each layer of the skin is removed in the area of the tumor, a board-certified pathologist maps each layer to ensure skin is cleared of cancer cells, while your facial plastic surgeon reconstructs the area to maintain your aesthetic appearance. All procedures are performed by Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, or Renata Khelemsky, MD at our award-winning specialty plastic surgery group in Melbourne, Florida.
