Mohs Surgery: State-of-the-Art Skin Cancer Treatment
Dr. Lapinski performs Mohs surgery, a precise and highly effective skin cancer treatment option. She is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, which means she completed a rigorous Mohs surgery training program by experienced Mohs College surgeons.
During Mohs surgery, the main part of the lesion is surgically removed, then the remaining cancerous tissue is carefully removed layer by layer, until margins of clear, cancer-free tissue emerge. This technique spares healthy tissue while completely removing the cancer, which makes it a popular choice for the face, neck, and hands.
