About

Mohs micrographic surgery is considered one of the most advanced and effective treatment options for many types of cancer. It provides the highest possible cure rates, while creating the smallest surgical defects, leading to the best cosmetic outcomes. Mohs surgery is so precise it can be perform around the eyes, nose, scalp, lips and ears.

Your Surgical Team 

Our center offers a team-oriented approach to skin cancer treatment allowing us to deliver the highest standard of care for prevention, detection and management of skin cancers.

Your Mohs surgeon is Dr. Matthew Belcher, a board certified dermatologist and fellowship trained surgeon. He is supported by a multidisciplinary team of physicians from specialties including:

  • Dermatology
  • Otolaryngology
  • Plastic Surgery
  • Oculoplastics

What to Expect

When you come to us we work with you to create an individualized treatment plan, applying the most effective procedures to remove your cancer.

During the procedure, a Mohs surgeon removes the abnormal skin growth layer by layer. Each layer is immediately examined under a microscope. Layers continue to be removed and examined until no abnormal cells are found. This way, only cancerous cells are removed while preserving the healthy tissue that surrounds them. 

Mohs surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in our offices using local anesthesia.
