Mohs Surgery: Gold Standard of Care with Highest Skin Cancer Cure Rate
What is the best treatment for skin cancer? According to the Skin Cancer Foundation the answer is, Mohs Micrographic Surgery. It has been estimated about 20% of adults will develop non-melanoma skin cancer in their lifetime. So, why is Mohs surgery considered the gold standard of care for removal of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma skin cancers? Simply put, it’s effective.
The Mohs surgery technique is so effective because of the precise nature of the procedure. The surgery is done in stages, the cancer is mapped out and the pathology of the excised skin cancer is analyzed on site while you wait. This process is completed by our fellowship trained Mohs Micrographic Surgeon, Noah Weisberg, M.D.
Dr. Weisberg trained in medicine at Vanderbilt University where he graduated in the top 5% of his class. He interned at the Mayo Clinic, completed his residency in Dermatology at The New York Presbyterian Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute, and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. He went on to complete and additional year of training in Mohs surgery at the Skin and Laser Surgery Center of Pennsylvania.
Dr. Weisberg has been consulting on and performing Mohs surgery cases for 19 years in Palm Beach County, Florida. His extensive training at world class medical institutions and his years of experience gives his patients the opportunity for the best possible outcome.
