Skin Cancer (MOHS Surgery)

About Our Skin Cancer Screening & Treatment Options

Catching skin cancer or pre-cancer cells early can make a significant difference in the severity and potentially dangerous outcome.

Dr. Chernoff has performed thousands of skin cancer screenings and has multiple options to treat and remove spots before they can turn into harmful cancer-causing cells.

Dr. Chernoff’s non-surgical treatments and techniques are unique since they minimize scarring and promote healthy tissue and cell growth.  Our center offers several different laser treatments to remove spots, sun damage, and pre-cancerous cells.

About Mohs Surgery

If a spot or lesion is not treatable using non-surgical and laser methods, Dr. Chernoff will perform Mohs surgery.

Mohs surgery is a highly effective treatment for certain types of skin cancer.  It is an exacting procedure to remove the skin cancer surgically and microscopically examine the surgical margins to ensure that all skin cancer cells have been removed.

Dr. Chernoff has completed over one thousand Mohs surgery cases and has excellent results in healing, even for difficult-to-treat areas like the tip of the nose and other areas of the face.
