Mohs Surgery

Mohs surgery, also called Mohs micrographic surgery, is a specialized surgical technique for removing skin cancer. Dr. Frederic Mohs developed the technique in the 1930s, and it has been modified and refined over the years. It is the treatment of choice for many skin cancers and offers the following advantages:

  • Highest cure rate: The tissue is prepared, mapped, and examined in our lab, allowing for microscopic evaluation of 100% of the deep and peripheral margins in order to precisely remove all of the cancerous cells.
  • Best cosmetic result: There is no need to take a large margin of healthy skin in mohs surgery; therefore, the size of the wound left after tumor removal is minimized. Keeping this defect small optimizes the surgical repair and produces a superior cosmetic result.

Cosmetic Dermatology

Our treatment philosophy is to help our patients achieve a more youthful, yet age-appropriate, appearance that complements their natural features. We believe that a good cosmetic procedure result is one that helps you look fresh and well rested, but not “done.” We always delight in patients who report that their friends or their colleagues at work say, “You look great!” – without quite being able to say why. We will listen to your concerns, goals, and expectations and develop a treatment plan to help you look your best.

At Knoxville Institute of Dermatology, all cosmetic injectable procedures such as Botox, Kybella and dermal fillers are administered by our board-certified dermatologists to ensure superior, longer-lasting results. Contact our office for a free cosmetic consultation with one of our physicians today.

Dermatopathology

Drs. Anderson and Rahman are two of the only physicians in Knoxville and East Tennessee with dual board certification in both clinical dermatology and dermatopathology. By integrating the clinical information with the microscopic findings, Drs. Anderson and Rahman are able to provide not only a pathologic diagnosis, but also clinical correlation and treatment recommendations. Drs. Anderson and Rahman evaluate skin biopsies performed in their office and also those sent in by other dermatologists and physicians. Daily pick-up service is provided to offices of physicians in the Knoxville area who wish to submit specimens. To arrange a pick-up, please contact the office.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I really was impressed with Dr. Wright. He is extremely knowledgeable and I really recommend him as a fine Dermatologist.

Ronna P.

Dr. Rahman is wonderful. She is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. She takes time to listen. She handled my problem right away. I had been very concerned about it.

Donna B.

What a great experience! I was greeted promptly and courteously by the front desk staff. I was seen almost immediately and treated with care and concern by both Devon and Dr. Wright. I will certainly make KID my home for dermatology and would highly recommend them to everyone.

Penny F.

Dr. Adam Wright took his time to explain the procedure, perform the surgery, and teach how to care for wound afterwards. I have found few physicians take such time with their patients and I am a registered nurse.

Laurie J.

I was very pleased with the efficiency of the staff who handed me some forms, then directed me upstairs where I barely sat down before I was escorted to the exam room. Dr. Wright came in a few minutes later and got down to business in a most pleasant and professional manner. Thank you.

Jerome R.

I had a recurring dermatological condition for several and a series of dermatologists as a result. And yet until I met Dr. Wright, my condition remained undiagnosed and it turned out to be potentially life-threatening. I am so fortunate to have found him and I would not go to anyone else and recommend him often.

Donald B.

Knox Institute of Dermatology is the best! Dr. Adam Wright has always been very courteous and knowledgeable of my care.

Robin P.

Lindsey Best, NP is a great listener and she is sensitive to my daughter’s questions and concerns. Her acne is getting better! Thank you!

Campbell T.

I saw the NP. She was personable, informative and skilled in taking care of my problem. I recommend her and will ask for her if I have need to go again.

Martha M.

Awesome doctor, awesome staff. Definitely would recommend this office to all my friends. Also, my husband is a patient and my daughters will have appointments soon.

Cynthia P.

Dr. Rahman and her nurse were very friendly, professional, and spent an appropriate amount of time with me. I have some benign lesions that I want to have removed at some time in the future and I will return to Knox Institute of Dermatology.

Patricia G.

We had a great experience with Dr Anderson, she was great with my 10 year old son, minimal wait times. Lovely office and staff!

Ian S.

Dr. Elizabeth Anderson is very thorough, knowledgeable, listens, explains the best treatments, and gives options for care.

Mark S.

I had an overall satisfying experience as usual. Short wait time, attractive and clean facilities, courteous and professional yet welcoming staff. Dr. Rahman was thorough and treatment options were well explained.

Larry Troy M.

Dr. Anderson has been my dermatologist for several years, and I continue to be impressed with her dedication, caring attitude, and professionalism. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

M Carol S.

I was called back promptly. Dr. Rahman was careful to make sure I was not experiencing any pain during the procedure.. The staff was friendly, yet very professional; clearly describing follow-up procedures I needed to perform. My insurance initially rejected a prescribed mediation, but the staff worked tirelessly and was successful in getting them to reverse their decision.

Susan P.

Friendly and excellent service! Love the staff, always up beat and happy. Comfortable with staff knowledge and skills. Just a great experience if there is such a thing when visiting a Dr.

Gary C.

Dr. Wright was very caring, answered questions in a way I could understand, listened to what I had to say. I especially appreciate that he doesn’t prescribe medications without careful thought and trying alternatives first.

Jane R.

Dr. Anderson is a knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring doctor. Her nurse, Lori, was equally sensitive to my concerns and she showed the utmost respect and dignity during my medical treatment.

Terrissa D.

They have a very nice and knowledgeable staff. I didn’t have to wait long, and they did a great job of explaining the process and options to me. I highly recommend this practice!
