Skin Cancer Treatment

Our plastic surgeons can remove skin cancer and reconstruct the cancer site in one sitting.

For many types of skin cancer, excision with either Mohs surgery or CCPDMA technique is recommended.

At Plastic & Hand:

Your skin cancer is removed by one of our plastic surgeons.

The entire surgical margin is immediately examined on-site by our board-certified pathologist, using CCPDMA technique (Complete Circumferential Peripheral and Deep Margin Assessment).

Once clear margins are confirmed, the skin cancer site is immediately reconstructed by the plastic surgeon.

You go home that day confident that the skin cancer is gone and that the site has been expertly reconstructed with the best plastic surgical techniques.

What are the benefits of treatment at Plastic & Hand?

Excision and reconstruction in one surgical visit by the plastic surgeon, expertly trained in aesthetic and reconstructive repair of the skin.
