Advanced Mohs Micrographic Surgery for Skin Cancer
Our dermatologists are skilled at detecting and treating skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the United States. If you are diagnosed with skin cancer, we can help.
Cape Cod Healthcare specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery, the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer. With this precise, innovative procedure, the doctor acts as both surgeon and pathologist, examining skin samples from the patient in the office and making a diagnosis immediately. The surgeon can often remove the cancerous tissue during the same visit, preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.
