When skin cancer strikes, DermSurgery Associates of Houston strikes back with Mohs surgery, one of the most effective treatments for the three most common skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Here are a few things you might like to know about why DermSurgery’s clinics in the greater Houston area are considered the leaders in this procedure.
Our director, Dr. Leonard Goldberg, is a world-recognized authority on Mohs surgery and is in-demand as a medical instructor, lecturer and author for this amazing surgical process. Dr. Goldberg has taught Mohs surgery in high-level academic positions and has received numerous awards over the years honoring his work relating to the procedure.
What is Mohs surgery?
The surgical discipline derives its name from Frederic E. Mohs, the Wisconsin physician who developed it in the 1930s. Mohs surgery focuses on removing and examining small sections of the patient’s skin where cancer is suspected. Rather than being a drastic, invasive operation, Mohs surgery is a gradual, gentle skin-removal process that stops when the last section of tissue examined shows no signs of cancer.
