Surf, fun, and balmy summer days are what living in places like Levittown, Long Beach, and Oceanside, NY is all about, but it is vital that we care for our skin while we're enjoying our beautiful surroundings too. Monitoring your skin and removing dangerous skin growths with techniques like Mohs Surgery, can help to keep your skin healthy for longer.
Dr. Michael Cohen and Dr. Sari Weinstein at South Nassau Dermatology have been successfully performing Mohs Micrographic Surgery for years to help patients with dangerous skin growths.
What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a highly specialized treatment utilized in the complete removal of skin cancer. The method is different from all other skin cancer treatment methods used in Levittown, Long Beach, and Oceanside, NY, for the following reasons:
- Mohs surgery uses a complete microscopic examination of all the tissues removed surgically
- Detailed mapping techniques allow Dr. Michael Cohen and Dr. Sari Weinstein to remove all the extensions and roots of the skin cancer
Dr. Frederic Mohs invented the technique in the 1930s and since then the treatment protocol has become so popular that there are over 1,200 physicians worldwide who are trained in a Mohs Surgery Training Center to carry out the procedure.
