The purpose of dermatologic surgery is to repair and/or improve the function and cosmetic appearance of skin tissue. Thanks to research breakthroughs, clinical advances and instrumentation innovations pioneered by skin surgery experts, the majority of dermatologic surgeries are now minimally invasive and require only local or regional anesthesia. This translates into superior patient safety while reducing the all-important “downtime” and recovery period. In addition, new developments and the latest techniques are constantly enhancing the results of many established skin surgery procedures.
Many skin cancers and most benign skin lesions can be removed at our office. Some larger lesions require a special surgical appointment so that adequate time is set aside for the surgical removal and repair. The removal of some lesions is considered cosmetic or “not medically necessary” by insurance companies. Nevertheless, many cosmetic lesions can be removed for minimal out of pocket expense.
If you have a lesion or other skin condition that you would like evaluated for possible surgical removal, we can help. To schedule an appointment, call (859) 226-0206 or submit the form.
