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 provide 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.
All the staff was very professional.
Dr. Parker is excellent!
The best of the best! He came highly recommended by a doctor we have great respect for and he certainly was correct. Dr Parker has taken perfect care on all four visits for Ralph.
I was diagnosed with 2 basal cell carcinomas requiring Mohs surgery by a dermatologist in McKinney. One was on my face and the other on my leg. I researched plastic surgeons specializing in Mohs surgery and found Dr. Parker. I had my surgery 2 weeks ago. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Dr. Parker and his whole staff were very encouraging, caring and talked me through every step of the process. I felt very safe and comfortable and never felt I was being rushed. He took the time to explain everything he was going to do and gave me time to ask any questions. Other than a little prick from the initial numbing shots, I felt no discomfort. My incisions were bandaged and I went back the next day for sutures. Each incision required 14 stitches. His nurse explained exactly how to care for them. 1 week later I went back to have the sutures removed and they were covered with steri strips. While I was there, I asked for a full body check, as I didn't feel my original dermatologist had done a thorough check. Dr. Parker found 2 more suspicious spots, 1 was precancerous which he removed all of with the biopsy scrape and another on my back was basal cell which I will be going back for another surgery. So thankful he checked me thoroughly, checking from my scalp to between my toes. Dr. Parker will now be my dermatologist. I can't recommend them highly enough!
