Board Certified Mohs Surgeon Dr. Greg Wittenberg
Mohs Micrographic Surgery is a state-of-the-art procedure for skin cancer which offers the highest potential for recovery - even if the skin cancer has been previously treated by another method and recurred.

Dr. Wittenberg and Dr. Sage are fellowship trained Mohs surgeons and members of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS). With advanced training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, our surgeons are able to precisely identify the tumor, remove it with minimal damage to the surrounding healthy tissue, and reconstruct the wound.

Initially developed by Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, the Mohs procedure is a state-of-the-art treatment that has been continuously refined over 70 years. With the Mohs technique, physicians are able to see beyond the visible disease, to precisely identify and remove the entire tumor layer by layer while leaving the surrounding healthy tissue intact and unharmed. As the most exact and precise method of tumor removal, it minimizes the chance of re-growth and lessens the potential for scarring or disfigurement.

Because the physician is specially trained in surgery, pathology, and reconstruction, Mohs surgery has the highest success rate of all treatments for skin cancer - up to 99 percent. The Mohs technique is also the treatment of choice for cancers of the face and other sensitive areas as it relies on the accuracy of a microscopic surgical procedure to trace the edges of the cancer and ensure complete removal of all tumors down to the roots during the initial surgery.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery remains the most effective method of removing non-melanotic skin cancer (basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, sebaceous carcinoma, Extramammary Paget's disease, Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, etc.) available anywhere in the world today.
