Surgical dermatology refers to minor surgical procedures used in dermatology to diagnose and treat benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) growths. Indications for procedures include biopsy of concerning lesions, treatment of precancerous growths, removal of skin cancers and removal of bothersome benign growths.

What is Mohs surgery?
Mohs surgery is a special type of skin cancer surgery performed by specially trained dermatologists called Mohs surgeons. This procedure is best suited for skin cancers in cosmetically sensitive or high-risk locations. Our providers are not Mohs surgeons and do not perform this procedure but they do recommend this for certain patients. We work closely with Mohs surgeons in Eugene and Portland should Mohs surgery be required.
