The skin is the body’s largest and most visible organ, covering its entire surface. Constant exposure to the environment means skin is at risk for injuries, infections, burns and other disorders. Dermatology is the study of diseases and conditions of the skin, hair and nails.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery at Affinity
Mohs micrographic surgery is an advanced treatment for skin cancer based on microscope technology. This state-of-the-art surgery offers the highest cure rate for skin cancer – up to 99 percent, even when other forms of treatment have failed. During Mohs surgery, the doctor acts as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. A microscope allows the doctor to remove the entire tumor, even beyond the visible disease. The precise nature of Mohs surgery minimizes the chance of regrowth and leaves healthy tissue unharmed. Doctors most often use Mohs surgery to treat the two most common forms of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
