Skin Cancer Surgery with our surgeon
Dr. Nathan Uebelhoer
What is Mohs Surgery?
Mohs Surgery is a specific type of surgery that is used to treat and remove skin cancer. The surgery is characterized by removing small layers of the cancer at a time, reviewing these layers underneath a microscope, and removing more if needed. This type of procedure will prevent any excess skin from being removed. Mohs surgeons attend an additional fellowship to study this precise technique that offers the highest cure rate as well as the smallest scar possible for cancer removal.
Dr. Nathan Uebelhoer attended residency at the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, and completed his fellowship at in Boston. He is highly regarded for his work on using CO2 to promote wound healing in conjunction with MOHS surgery. Dr. Uebelhoer has performed over 20,000 surgeries.
