Providence Glisan Dermatologic Surgery
Our team, which includes a board-certified dermatologic surgeon, specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery - the most effective choice of treatment for certain types of skin cancer. This unique procedure allows complete examination of tissue that contains skin cancer and is remarkably beneficial for removing tumors - especially those located on the face near the eye and on the nose - including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. This precise surgical technique is the most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer and has a very high cure rate.
Most important is our partnership with you – our patient. You are a valued member of our health care team, and we want to be sure that you have the information you need to make the best possible health decisions for your health and lifestyle. We strive to provide the most comprehensive and compassionate care for you and your family members and are honored to be partners in the health and care of your skin.
Mohs surgery is an outpatient procedure, performed in our state-of-the-art surgical suite. An excellent treatment option, this precise surgical technique is the most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer and has a very high cure rate.
During your procedure, the surgeon will remove layers of cancerous skin and microscopically examine them until only cancer-free tissue remains and then repair the wound for the best cosmetic and functional result. This can involve reconstructive surgery, and our dermatologists have extensive experience in the latest techniques.
