What is Mohs Surgery?
Developed by physician Frederic Mohs, Mohs micrographic surgery is a precise technique for skin cancer removal. It removes cancers in layers using a special method of mapping and microscopic examination of the tumor and underlying roots. The state-of-the-art procedure has become the treatment of choice for many types of skin cancer due to the highest cure rates for skin cancer treatment, and the best cosmetic and functional results.
Surgeries are performed on-site at our Dallas facility under the comforts of local anesthesia,
Your fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon will carefully remove the visible tumor with a conservative, thin layer of surrounding tissue.
Your surgeon will examine the tissue edges under a microscope. If cancer remains, that area is marked on a map as a “positive” (bad) margin.
The map guides selective removal of residual cancer while sparing healthy skin. The procedure stops when there is no longer evidence of cancer.
We’ll discuss reconstructive options as needed. The recovery process varies — you’ll receive detailed postoperation care instructions.
Our compassionate staff and advanced facility in Dallas provides patients with a safe, calm atmosphere in which to receive their treatments.
Great experience. Dr Parker and staff made me feel at ease when getting four skin cancers removed off my face. Scars barely visible. So thankful my Dermatologist recommended Dr. Parker. Highly recommend.
Excellent care, treatment and recovery. Dr Parker is friendly and professional. As is his staff. Others spoke highly of him too. After surgery, I had skin grafts to my nose and they were hardly noticible and not painful. He is a geniuses at fixing things. Be patient with him as he has so many needing his help.
Dr Parker and his staff are amazing. Not only did he answer every question and concern I had, he listened and is was very down-to-earth. He is also helping me with locations where the cancer removal has disfigured my face. Skin cancer can be a little scary, but Dr Parker makes you feel very supported. The clinic is super clean, the staff is super nice and I would recommend him HIGHLY. A++
Excellent experience! Dr Parker has great bedside manners. He took his time to explain procedure in detail and made sure I understood the process. He answered all questions. His office staff and nurses also all very helpful, friendly and nice.
