The Most Effective Treatment for Skin Cancer
Why Choose a Fellowship-trained Mohs Surgeon?
At The Skin Surgery Center, our Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons are some of the most well-respected providers in the industry. Collectively, we provide unmatched skin cancer services to our patients, delivering the highest level of quality care and patient outcomes.
The American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) offers fellowship training programs that are significantly more challenging and thorough than other Mohs programs. ACMS fellows-in-training experience months of extensive, hands-on direction from highly qualified instructors.
By choosing a Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, you can be assured that you will receive the highest standard of quality and expertise as well as an optimal outcome. Mohs micrographic surgery has set a new standard for skin cancer treatment, but not all physicians performing this Mohs surgery receive the same level of training.
At The Skin Surgery Center, Dr. John G. Albertini, Dr. Daniel Pearce, Dr. Gerardo Marrazzo, Dr. Christopher R. Urban, Dr. Evan Stiegel, Dr. Landon E. Stigall, Dr. Mario V. Mitkov, and Dr. Stephanie Howerter have all earned the highest degree of Mohs surgery qualification by completing an American College of Mohs Surgery approved fellowship. Additionally, Dr. Albertini is a past president of the ACMS. To learn more about the ACMS fellowship training program, click HERE.
What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs Surgery is a method of treating skin cancer by removing the diseased area in stages, layer by layer, and examining the tissue along the way. This type of treatment helps the physician determine if the tumor is completely removed after the surgery has been performed.
What Skin Cancers are Treated with Mohs Surgery?
There are several different types of tumor growth that are best treated using the Mohs technique, most commonly melanoma, basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. What is visible on the surface of the skin may only be a portion of the tumor that exists beneath.
