"My goal is to provide the highest quality of care, from complete skin cancer removal to reconstruction, to ensure the best possible functional and cosmetic outcomes for each patient.” said Dr. Chen.
SUGAR LAND, Texas (PRWEB) March 09, 2021
U.S. Dermatology Partners Sugar Land is pleased to announce they will now offer convenient access to state-of-the-art treatment for skin cancer.
Mohs surgery, named after Dr. Frederic Mohs, is considered the gold-standard and the most effective way to treat skin cancer. This procedure involves precise surgical removal of the cancer cells layer by layer until healthy, cancer-free tissue around the tumor is reached under the microscope (commonly referred to as clear margins). Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons acquire multidisciplinary skills in the areas of dermatologic surgery, cutaneous oncology, dermatopathology, and reconstructive surgery. Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer, up to 99 percent.
Procedures will be performed by Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeon Leon Chen, MD. Dr. Chen earned his Medical Doctorate from the University of Texas McGovern Medical School at Houston. He completed his dermatology residency training at the MD Anderson Cancer Center/University of Texas McGovern Medical School combined program and his Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (Mohs) fellowship at MD Anderson Cancer Center. He was the winner of the Review Article Incentive Program awarded by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) during his time as a dermatology resident. Dr. Chen’s deep passion for skin cancer has led him to author more than 30 peer-reviewed research manuscripts and numerous book chapters. His research has been presented at national and international dermatology meetings. He is also the editor of the textbook Basal Cell Carcinoma: Advances in Treatment and Research. “Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and the incidence rates are increasing. Because skin cancer is often found on the face and other highly visible areas, the thought of surgery may be daunting. My goal is to provide the highest quality of care, from complete skin cancer removal to reconstruction, to ensure the best possible functional and cosmetic outcomes for each patient.” Said Dr. Chen.
