Mohs Surgery in Smithtown
For Mohs surgery in Smithtown, visit our experienced Mohs surgeon at Spatique Medical Spa. We offer leading expertise in Mohs surgery, the most effective technique for removing the two most common skin cancers: basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. In this complex, painstaking process, the surgeon removes tumor tissue, layer by layer. Each layer is frozen and examined for tumor cells under a microscope before proceeding to the next layer.
Because Mohs surgery is micrographically controlled, it can precisely expunge cancer cells while preserving the greatest amount of healthy tissue. This makes Mohs surgery in Smithtown particularly useful for treating skin cancers on the face, hands, feet, and genitals, where tissue preservation is most important.
Mohs surgery has the highest cure rate of any skin cancer treatment – around 98% for basal cell carcinoma, and slightly less for squamous cell carcinoma. Mohs surgery can also be used to treat irregular moles, melanomas, and a range of other skin cancers. As well as being more effective, the Mohs procedure is cheaper than other surgical methods, which involve a separate pathological analysis.
At Spatique Medical Spa, we are committed to delivering the best results from your Mohs surgery in Smithtown. Our specialized Mohs surgeon brings both surgical precision and the outstanding pathological experience needed to read each specimen slide.
