Surgical Dermatology

Dr. Cole treats a wide variety of benign and malignant skin lesions. Surgical procedures are performed in the office under local anesthesia. Some of the surgeries he performs include:

Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Mohs surgery is a skin cancer removal technique involving real-time examination under the microscope using specialized tissue processing different than that of routine pathology. This technique provides the highest clearance/cure rates for skin cancer, and is ideal in larger or aggressive tumors, or those in cosmetically sensitive areas. By performing the jobs of both pathologist and surgeon, Dr. Cole is able to precisely remove cancerous tissue while preserving healthy skin. This, coupled with his extensive training in repair of skin cancer defects, ensures aesthetically-pleasing results and very high cure rates.

Patient outcomes, comfort, and convenience are all paramount. Most cases are recontructed in the office immediately after skin cancer clearance. This provides the most cost-effective and convenient care. Occasionally, Dr. Cole may recommend referral to another specialist (plastic surgeon, ophthalmologist, oculoplastic surgeon, etc.) after your skin cancer has been cleared. This is generally only for very large tumors or those involving certain structures (large portions of the eyelid margin, for example). In these cases, Dr. Cole will discuss with you the various options on the best plan of care before proceeding.
