While treatment of skin cancer is the primary goal for dermatologist trained in Mohs surgery, patients often want their appearance to be as normal as possible. Getting your appearance back to the level it was before cancer surgery goes a long way in restoring confidence and a positive outlook.
Dr. Wallin is a trained MOHS reconstructive surgeon with extensive experience repairing the wounds caused by skin cancers. Treatment options vary based on tumor depth and location but include the suturing of wounds or grafts to close areas of the skin. Dr. Wallin closely follows up with all patients after reconstruction to monitor the recovery process and encourages all patients to continue routine care with their dermatologist for detection of potential cancer reoccurrences and the presence of new lesions.
