Top surgical dermatology services by fellowship trained, New York Dermatologists.

Surgical dermatology services

Spectrum Skin and Laser focuses on prevention, however, when surgery is necessary, we deliver the treatment plan that’s right for you.  A cancer diagnosis can be distressing and very upsetting, but with early treatment it can also be one of the easiest forms to treat. With Mohs Micrographic Surgery (Mohs surgery), the procedure is designed to be minimally invasive. 

Mohs Micrographic Surgery is an efficient procedure in which the tumor is removed and studied under a microscope, while the patient waits in the office. After Dr. Brauer determines that the margins are “clear,” the wound is reconstructed. Mohs not only has the highest cure rate, it also saves the greatest amount of healthy tissue and leaves the smallest scars.

We perform a variety of other surgical dermatology services including:

  • Excisional Surgery to remove malignant moles, lesions and tumors from the skin along with a healthy margin around the tumor.
  • Freezing/Cryosurgery where we utilize extreme cold produced by liquid nitrogen or argon gas to destroy cancer cells and abnormal tissue.
  • Electrosurgery which uses a high-frequency electric current to heat and cut tissue with great precision.

The Mohs Micrographic Surgery Process

Mohs micrographic surgery is named for Frederic E. Mohs, the physician and surgeon who pioneered it in the 1930s. Mohs micrographic surgery is an efficient and minimally invasive procedure, in which the tumor is removed and studied under a microscope, while the patient waits in the office. After the surgeon determines that the margins are “clear,” the wound is reconstructed
