Dr. Alissa Lamoureux, board-certified skin dermatologist at Skin Dermatology in Shrewsbury and Worcester, MA, is highly trained in the diagnosis and surgical management of skin cancer.
Surgery for Skin Cancer
Surgery is a common treatment for basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers. Different surgical techniques can be used. The options depend on the type of skin cancer, how large the cancer is, where it is on the body, and other factors. Most often, the surgery can be performed by Dr. Lamoureux at our office in Shrewsbury, which is located in the greater Worcester, MA area. Dr. Lamoureux is always very considerate regarding how a surgical procedure can affect skin healing and appearance.
