Dr. Seema Sheth is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic surgeon.
What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs micrographic surgery is a highly specialized, state-of-the-art procedure for removal of skin cancer. It is the most effective and advanced treatment for skin cancer today, offering cure rates of up to 99%. Mohs surgery consists of a precise technique that removes skin cancer in stages, allowing the Mohs surgeon to identify and remove the entire tumor while leaving the surrounding normal skin unharmed and intact. It is the procedure of choice for large, recurrent, or aggressive cancers, and cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas such as the face, scalp, ears, neck, shins, hands and feet. The entire procedure is done safely in the office, under local anesthesia.
Why Choose a Fellowship Trained Mohs Surgeon?
Fellowship trained Mohs surgeons undergo one year of additional extensive, hands-on training directly from highly qualified instructors, beyond the traditional dermatology residency. In doing so, they gain a breadth of exposure to rare tumor pathology, difficult tumor locations, and complex wound reconstruction, obtaining a depth of training and experience that is unmatched. By choosing a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, you can be assured that you will receive the highest standard of quality and competence.
