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.

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.
