MOHS Surgery

Our innovative specialized dermatopathology team partners with our surgeons to perform high-tech MOHS surgery on many skin cancer patients. This procedure removes skin cancer while successfully preserving as much normal tissue as possible, minimizing the cosmetic impact of the removal.

MOHS surgery is mostly performed on the face, ears, nose, neck, and eyelids where achieving complete tumor removal with the preservation of normal tissue is crucial. In many cases, MOHS surgery can achieve a 97–99 percent cure rate. We’ll determine if this is the best plan of action for your needs.

What Is Levulon?

Levulan helps improve the appearance of actinic keratoses, or rough, scaly patches that develop from years of sun exposure. Levulan is a topical, light-activated aminolevulinic acid that is proven to penetrate through the rough patches.

By combining this treatment with photodynamic therapy, Dr. Clevens can reduce precancerous cells. The treatment combination helps improve actinic keratoses faster, more thoroughly, and with the less side effects. Clevens recommends two Levulan treatments to start, two weeks apart, after which you’ll discuss the need for ongoing maintenance treatments.

Hear from one of our dermatology patients.

"As a homegrown Floridian, I have been in the sun all my life. Over the past couple years, I developed a sore on my right cheek that comes and goes in the same spot, but never heals fully. My daughter has me go to a plastic surgeon to get it checked. Upon seeing Dr. Clevens and getting it biopsied, he determined it needed to get excised and removed. I was fortunate that I didn't need a full MOHS procedure but it was pretty deep. Unsure of the exact cost because it was covered by insurance. I am 2 months out and my face has healed great and I have minimal scarring and am using biocorneum and starting laser scar treatment."
