With the increase incidents of skin cancer, we are happy to be able to provide Mohs surgery to the communities in and around Grapevine.
Grapevine, Texas (PRWEB) September 29, 2016
The newly renovated offices at Dermatology Associates of DFW, Grapevine, includes 5 new state of the art surgical suites, a new lab and comfortable waiting area specifically for Mohs patients. Mohs surgery is the most effective treatment for most types of skin cancer. The Mohs procedure involves surgically removing the cancer layer by layer and examining the tissue under a microscope until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached (commonly referred to as clear margins). Fellowship trained Mohs surgeons are specially trained as a cancer surgeon, pathologist, and reconstructive surgeon. Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer – up to 99%.
Specializing in the prevention, detection and treatment of skin cancer, Dr. Nicholas Snavely recently joined the team at Dermatology Associates of DFW, Grapevine, with expertise in Mohs Surgery and comprehensive skin cancer treatment. Dr. Snavely will join Mohs Surgeon Diego Marra, MD who will work out of the Grapevine office.
“With the increase incidents of skin cancer, we are happy to be able to provide Mohs surgery to the communities in and around Grapevine” Dr. Snavely commented.
Dr. Snavely began his higher education at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology, graduating Cum Laude. He then went on to earn his Medical Degree from Baylor College of Medicine, located in Houston, Texas in 2006.
Dr. Snavely completed an Advanced Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, Oregon, under accomplished Surgeons Dr. Neil Swanson, M.D, and Dr. Anna Bar, M.D.
Dr. Snavely is a proud Member of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Dermatological Surgery, American College of Mohs Surgery and the American Medical Association.
Growing up in Avon, Ohio, about 20 minutes west of Cleveland, Dr. Snavely spent a good deal of his leisure time participating in sports – especially basketball. Now, he loves living in Austin and is thrilled to have the opportunity to come back to this vibrant part of the Country and participate in serving Central Texas. Dr. Snavely enjoys jogging, cooking, reading, and he still attempts to play basketball.
