Mohs Surgery | Skin Cancer Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery treats skin cancer differently – the physician is the surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. Dr. Bandt is a certified Mohs surgeon. The procedure takes the cancerous tumor out in stages. The visible portion of the tumor is surgically removed, divided into sections and mapped. This tissue is then examined with a microscope to determine if the skin cancer might still be present. If cancer cells still remain, additional tissue is removed and repeated as necessary. Due to this rigorous examination of tissue, this surgery has an extremely high cure rate. The entire procedure is performed in our office with local anesthesia.
Dr. Bandt has expertise in reconstruction techniques as well, including cosmetic procedures to provide the best aesthetic result for her patients.
