Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a highly effective treatment option for non-melanoma skin cancer. This procedure can remove both Basal Cell Carcinoma (the most common form of skin cancer) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma cancer tissue with success rates above 98% while leaving the healthy skin surrounding the cancer mostly unharmed. As with all cancer treatments, the success rates improve dramatically with early detection.

Dr. Sukal, a fellowship trained Mohs Micrographic Surgeon, performs the treatment by first injecting a local anesthetic into the skin, then excising an individual thin layer of skin tissue. This entire slice is examined under a microscope and searched for any cancerous cells. This procedure is repeated until no cancerous cells are detected under the microscope.

The micrographically controlled precision of the surgery makes it an especially preferrable treatment option in anatomically sensitive and important areas such as the eyelids, ears, nose, and lips. 

Dr. Sukal is an Ivy League-trained, board-certified Dermatologist with unique sub-specialty fellowship training in Mohs Surgery under the outstanding tutelage of Dr. Roy G. Geronemus at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York in New York City, one of the country's premier Mohs and laser practices.  There he received state-of-the-art training in the latest techniques in Mohs surgery.
