Our surgical treatments range from the removal of benign lesions like cysts, skin tags, and unwanted moles to removal of precancerous growths and skin cancers. We pride ourselves in having a gentle touch that yields outstanding surgical results. Surgical Procedures:

Biopsy
aka shave or punch biopsy. A small sample of a skin growth is removed by shaving or cutting with a hollow scalpel (punch tool). The sample is then sent to a lab where a skin pathologist views it under a microscope to determine a diagnosis.

Cryosurgery
aka liquid nitrogen or freezing. Liquid nitrogen is applied to certain growths to aid in their removal. Some of those growths include skin tags, warts, seborrheic keratoses, pre-cancers, and certain skin cancers.

ED&C
aka scrape and burn or electrodesiccation and curettage. This is the removal of superficial, small skin cancers on certain areas of the body with a curette and cautery.

Excision
surgical removal of a benign or malignant growth by cutting through the skin. After the lesion is removed, the skin is then stitched together, and the growth is sent to a lab for analysis by a skin pathologist. A biopsy may be required before an excision is offered.
