Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized surgical procedure that boasts the highest cure rate of any skin cancer treatment. It enables the surgeon to remove the tumor and examine the margins underneath a microscope in real-time. Once the cancer is definitively removed, the surgical defect is reconstructed at the same visit, providing the patient with a convenient, optimal outcome.
In addition to performing Mohs surgery on basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, our facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art process called immunostaining. This enables us to perform Mohs surgery on melanoma (MART-1 stain), ensuring the highest possible cure rate and the least amount of scarring.
Dr. Miller is among the few fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgeons in the region. In addition to skin cancer removal, his expertise includes advanced facial reconstructive techniques that minimize scarring and maximize cosmetic outcomes.
