Seven of our dermatologists are qualified to practice Mohs micrographic surgery
by having met high standards established for fellow membership in the American Society of Mohs Surgery
. Carl Bigler, M.D. is also a Board Certified Dermatopathologist. They surgically excise dangerous head and neck cancers daily using the Mohs Micrographic Surgery technique which is the most advanced and effective treatment procedure for skin cancer available today.
Because each physician is specially trained in surgery, pathology, and reconstruction, Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer - up to 99 percent.
The Mohs technique is also the treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas as it relies on the accuracy of a microscopic surgical procedure to trace the edges of the cancer and ensure complete removal of all tumors down to the roots during the initial surgery.
