Squamous Cell Surgery
If you are someone you know has been recently diagnosed with squamous cell skin cancer, Olansky Dermatology Associates can help you through highly specialized and effective surgery in the Atlanta, GA area. Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common form of skin cancer. It is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the skin’s upper layers. If you have squamous cell skin cancer, you might notice red scaly patches, open sores, or elevated growths with a central depression on the sun-exposed areas of your body. Our Mohs surgery is your best treatment option to remove your squamous cell skin cancer.
What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs micrographic surgery is a minor yet advanced surgical procedure that removes skin cancer effectively using only local anesthesia. Mohs is a very precise, highly detailed technique in which small layers of skin are sequentially removed and immediately examined under the microscope until the samples indicate that the skin cancer is completely gone. By removing only tissue where cancer is known to be present, the technique combines a very high cure rate with good preservation of normal skin. Olansky Dermatology Associates has our very own Mohs micrographic surgeon at our Atlanta practice. Let Dr. David Olansky and his dedicated team of skin cancer specialists take care of your skin cancer removal today with our revolutionary Mohs surgery.
