Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fader "Dr. Fader performs Mohs microscopic surgery, a skin cancer removal technique which uses microscopy to remove only the cancerous tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact and unharmed. This precise method minimizes the chance of cancer re-growth, and lessens the likelihood of scarring or disfigurement."

Mohs surgery to remove basal cell carcinoma on upper lip. Excellent job. Also removed a basal cell carcinoma very near the eye for my wife a few years ago.

I had a small area of skin removed on my leg. The direction of the incision was chosen nicely, and the scar is very minimal. Other dermatologists who have seen it have commented that the surgery was performed well.
