Expertise in Mohs Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery is a cutting-edge and effective treatment for various types of skin cancer. The Mohs technique is thought to be the gold standard in the treatment of skin cancer. This procedure involves the surgical elimination of skin cancer in a layer by layer manner.
In this procedure, each layer is examined under a microscope until the malignant tissue is entirely removed and the margins are clear (the tissue around the tumor is free of cancer).
More traditional methods of skin cancer treatment estimate the extent of the tissue to treat while the Mohs procedure examines 100 percent of the tumor enabling Dr. McGinness to take only the necessary amount of tissue to make sure that the cancer is entirely eliminated.
This technique helps minimize the amount of healthy tissue removed and enhances the aesthetic results. Dr. McGinness performs general dermatology as well as surgical dermatology procedures.
