Mohs Surgery
Our most specialized treatment used to successfully remove aggressive skin cancers.
A Surgical Approach
Cancers on the face are tricky. Like all cancers, they tend to grow downward, like tree roots stretching in all directions.
Our dermatologists at Arsenault Dermatology offer Mohs surgery in Bradenton, FL and the surrounding areas to help treat skin cancer. The Mohs technique allows the surgeon to use a microscope in real-time. Our Mohs surgeons can achieve success rates of 97% or better by attacking the cancer in stages and then carefully looking at the microscopic results.
All of our fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons are the best and brightest in their field. Each of them specializes in fully removing the skin cancer and closing cosmetically sensitive areas (like the face) with an excellent result.
While most skin cancer patients will not require the Mohs technique, it's a comforting thought to know this expertise is ready and available to you if needed.

Who Needs Mohs Surgery?

  • Indicated for the treatment of aggressive basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Recommended for cancers located around the eyes, ears, mouth, or lips where the skin is thin and load-bearing.
  • Also indicated for some skin cancers located on ankles, shins, hands, or feet.
  • Mohs is also used to treat rare skin cancers such as extramammary Paget’s disease, Merkel cell carcinoma, or dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans.

After the skin cancer and its roots are fully removed, the Mohs surgeon then repairs the area. Using advanced techniques, most Mohs patients enjoy an excellent cosmetic outcome. If you need Mohs surgery in Sarasota, FL or the surrounding areas, be sure to reach out to Arsenault Dermatology today for more information.
