The Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale (SCCS) is working to help meet the rising demand skin cancer surgery by offering Mohs micrographic surgery on-site at its Scottsdale, Ariz. location.
Recognized as the most effective surgical treatment for basal cell skin cancer and squamous cell skin cancer, Mohs micrographic surgery is performed under local anesthetic with the use of a microscope. Thin layers of the affected skin are removed and examined under the microscope to ensure that no evidence of the disease remains.
Studies have shown that Mohs surgery has a 98 percent success rate in treating basal cell and squamous cell skin cancer than other skin cancer treatment methods.
“Mohs surgery is recognized in the industry as the best option for surgical treatment of basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers,” said Dr. Joseph Machuzak, dermatologist at the Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale. “What’s unique about this surgery is that we’re able to spare the largest amount of the patient's healthy skin while eliminating the cancer, a defining difference from other treatments.”
At SCCS, diagnosed patients don’t have to struggle to get an appointment. The dermatology practice offers the surgery on-site with two dermatologists who specialize in the procedure, Dr. Machuzah and Dr. Mark Meyers.
“The Skin and Cancer Center of Scottsdale is dedicated to providing the best care for our patients, from skin cancer screenings to effective treatments like Mohs surgery,” said Robert J. Casquejo, PA-C. “Being able to provide our patients with Mohs surgery on-site has changed our practice and, more importantly, the experience of our patients.”
