The best surgical care

The skin is subject to a wide variety of growths, tumors, and cancers which may require surgical treatment and intervention.

 

Dermatologic surgeries are done in the office under local anesthesia and do not involve muscle, tendons, bones or large blood vessels and nerves and are therefore safe and relatively painless.

 

The most common lesions treated are skin cancers, abnormal moles, cysts, and lipomas (abnormal fatty growths).  Infections of the skin may sometimes need to be surgically incised and drained.

 

Skin cancers are subject to a wide variety of different treatments (destructions, excisions and Mohs surgery).

 

All providers at Carson Dermatology have experience and training in the surgical treatment of abnormal skin lesions.
