What is Surgical Dermatology?

Dermatology isn’t all about creams, antibiotics, and other simple interventions. Some skin problems require surgery, but that doesn’t mean you need to go to the hospital or mark weeks off your calendar for recovery. Our board-certified dermatologist can perform most surgeries in our office, and you can return to your home for recovery the same day.

Most dermatological surgeries are minimally invasive procedures. An example is the removal of a mole. These procedures are completed in our office on an outpatient basis. They typically require minimal recovery time. The goal is to improve the health and appearance of the patient’s skin with the least invasive procedure available.

More serious dermatological surgeries like skin cancer treatments are conducted by in-house specialists known as Mohs surgeons. These surgical treatments are still performed as outpatient surgeries. They’re more likely to require ongoing care to ensure serious skin conditions don’t return or are properly controlled over time.

Working with Mohs Surgeons – What to Expect

We’re proud to offer Mohs surgeries right from our office. Our Mohs surgeons are trained to diagnose and treat patients with micrographic surgery or standard excisions. Micrographic surgery is designed to resolve a patient’s skin issues while removing the least amount of skin tissue possible. While this advanced form of surgery is preferred by most patients, some procedures do require traditional excisions.

All Mohs surgeons at Derick Dermatology are fellowship-trained professionals. They have significant hands-on experience and are experts in the field of dermatological surgery. We’re committed to selecting the most effective surgical intervention for every patient.

Our team is both professional and compassionate because we understand that our patients are often worried, nervous, and uneasy about undergoing surgery. We take the time to ensure you understand how your surgery is completed and why it is needed to treat your skin condition. You will receive complete instructions for recovering from your surgery at home.

Surgical Dermatology at Your Convenience

We work with our patients to ensure convenient scheduling for all surgeries. Our professional team will help you select the date based on the amount of time required for completion of the surgery and the expected duration of recovery. If you have questions about returning to work or other post-surgical activities, we’re always available to provide answers.
