Mohs surgery in Peoria, AZ
The methods of Mohs Micrographic Surgery are acknowledged by dermatology clinics nationwide as the leading and most advanced form of skin cancer therapy available today. Dr. Mackey is proud to be among the number of highly specialized physicians who can offer this cutting-edge treatment to their patients. Mohs surgery offers the highest cure rate, approaching 99% for most initially untreated cancers, and minimizes the loss of good tissue during surgery. It is especially beneficial on sensitive surfaces such as the face, around the eyes, lips, and nose, as its potential for scarring is greatly decreased.
Mohs surgery is and will continue to be the most effective method of removing such non-melanotic forms of skin cancer as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell cancer, sebaceous carcinoma, Extramammary Paget's disease, and Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Advanced Desert Dermatology is extremely proud to be able to provide Mohs surgery to their patients. Our advanced procedure makes it possible for the patient to come in for a follow-up, or initial surgery in the morning and know the results of the biopsy before they go home.
