Mohs surgery is the most effective treatment option for the vast majority of skin cancer. Mohs surgery can be applied to many forms of skin cancer including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and some melanomas.

Smaller tumors on the trunk and extremities can often be removed and repaired immediately in the office. Benign growths such as lipomas and cysts can be treated with excision as well. Excision can also be an option for several more aggressive skin cancers such as invasive melanoma. Dr. Sorace can evaluate your individual needs and discuss your options with you.
Whenever a skin cancer is removed from the body, whether via Mohs surgery or excision, a wound or “defect” is left in its place. A defect can be allowed to heal or repaired with reconstructive surgery. Which option is right for you depends on the shape and location of the wound. Dr. Sorace has received extensive training in how to repair both small and large defects on the face and other parts of the body. At the time of your surgery, Dr. Sorace will discuss all of your options with you and, if necessary, repair the defect with meticulous care and attention.

As a fellowship trained skin surgeon, Dr. Sorace has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease of the legs.
